Students and their families attending the Health and Science Fair at Fulton’s Fairgrieve Elementary School got an up close look of the medical imaging and laboratory services offered by Oswego Health through some fun, hands-on demonstrations.

The fair participants could view actual medical images of various body parts and learn more about the department’s image gently program, which promotes parent awareness. The students could also look through a microscope and see red and white blood cells, as well as look at bacteria growth.

The Oswego Healthcare System includes Oswego Hospital, The Manor at Seneca Hill, a skilled nursing facility; Springside at Seneca Hill, a retirement living community; an urgent care center in Fulton, as well as health services centers in Mexico, Parish and Phoenix.
