After learning about the signs and symptoms of diabetes and then developing educational materials on the disease, Oswego Hospital’s New Vision students shared their new-found information with residents as part of a community service program.
For their project, the students developed an informational brochure on the three types of diabetes, a research guide with local resources for diabetics, a helpful website, as well as interactive displays.
They distributed their materials during two days at sites that included Oswego Hospital and the Fulton Urgent Care Center.
During the past school year, the Oswego BOCES Allied Health New Vision students, who are high school seniors from throughout Oswego County, have spent the school year two days a week learning about healthcare careers through rotations at Oswego Hospital.
The rotations included learning opportunities in the surgery center, laboratory, medical imaging department, biomedical engineering and the business office among others.
