At Prisma Health, we believe that since risk-taking is a natural part of adolescence, our youth need the opportunity to see the consequences of their choices.
We're working to accomplish this goal through Project READY (Realistic Education about Dying Young), our reality-based education program that exposes adolescents to the Prisma Health Richland Level I Trauma Center.
Interested in attending an upcoming session?
Call 803-296-CARE (2273) to register.
You must register to participate. Presenters in our sessions may include the South Carolina Department of Public Safety, the State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) or the National Safety Council of South Carolina (“Alive at 25” program).
Some presentations will include graphic images of injured trauma patients which may be disturbing to teens. There will be adult supervision during sessions (parents may drop-off and pick-up their child). A light breakfast and lunch will be provided to registered participants. Participants must be ages 13–21 to be eligible.
All sessions will be held from 8 a.m.–12:30 p.m.
