Trinity Health Celebrates National Health Care Week

Posted: Updated:

Today marks the beginning of National Health Care Week, and to celebrate, Trinity Health in Minot will be hosting all different activities.

Third and fourth grade students from area schools attended a simulated classroom called Hands on Health. Learning stations with surgery, x-ray and heart services showed the kids what happens behind the scenes in a hospital setting.

“It’s always good to get them doing hands on things that they are going to be doing later on in life. It gives them an opportunity to practice being a doctor, practice being a nurse, and learn facts that I wasn't able to teach them in the classroom,” says Dakota Elementary School teacher Chelsea Berens.

For student Lydia Collins, her favorite part was the surgery room.

“I got to pull pieces of vegetables out of Jell-o pretending to do surgery on it. Then I got to cut noodles and pick them up with tweezers,” says Lydia.

The program focuses on the importance of making healthy choices when it comes to nutrition and exercise.
