EVENT: Are teens realistic about the consequences of their actions? As the home to the Midlands’ only Level I trauma center, treating the area’s most critically-ill and injured patients, Palmetto Health wants to provide teens with information to help keep them safe.
WHEN: Saturday, March 30
TIME: 8 a.m.-1 p.m.
PLACE: Palmetto Health Richland auditorium, 5 Medical Park Drive, first floor
ABOUT: Teens will join staff from various areas of the hospital as they present Project READY (Realistic Education About Dying Young), an injury prevention program designed to provide adolescents with a realistic insight into the consequences of risk-taking behaviors that lead to traumatic injury.
This free five-hour session includes interactive injury presentations, a tour of the hospital’s trauma area and morgue and participation in injury/disability simulation stations with physical, occupational and speech therapists. A light breakfast and lunch will be provided.
Project READY is sponsored by the Palmetto Health Office of Community Health and the Palmetto Health Richland Trauma Program.
