PULSE of Surgery at Owensboro / Pennyroyal PLC
Date & Time
8:00 am - 11:00 am
Who should attend: Cadettes, Seniors, Ambassadors & Juliettes of appropriate program levels.
Max number of participants: 40
Girl Scouts in grades 6-12 and leaders will link to a live open-heart surgery performed by a medical team at Jewish Hospital. During real-time surgery, Girl Scouts and leaders will interact with the surgeon, nursing staff, perfusionists, and others in the operating room, while learning about the procedure, the tools used, and the techniques that must be mastered in order to perform a successful open-heart surgery.
NOTE: Because of the nature of this program NO ONE under girls in sixth grade will be permitted into the video viewing area.
Girl Scouts and leaders will meet local experts in health care and discuss the importance of healthy lifestyle choices. Participants will be able to experience this unique program via video conferencing. They will view the live surgery as it happens and be able to submit questions via online chat. Program also includes the pre- and post-visit curriculum guides, a surgical video to reference at each PLC, and student workbooks.
The Pulse of Surgery program is made possible by our wonderful relationship with the Kentucky Science Center and program support from Jewish Hospital & St. Mary’s Foundation, Greater Louisville Medical Society and Medical Society Professional Services.
