Tour guides always asked if we had questions
Peaceful and professional atmosphere Expectations Thought it was going to be super formal
That we were going to learn more about health careers and not warehouses and labs
That I would get a lot of information about how the health care industry works
That the people would be bothered by all the teenagers Events of the Day Visited the central stores warehouse where we got to see where all the supplies for about 480 medical centers and one hospital were stored
Got to see inside their blood lab where hematology took place
Visited the physical and occupational therapy center and got to see and play around with some different tools used in therapy Highlights of the Day Being able to see the elderly actually being helped at the physical and occupational therapy center. They were being walked around and helped by stepping up stairs and using exercise equipment.
Another highlight was the tour guide. He was very helpful in answering questions and trying to make the day interesting for the ten or so teenagers he had to lead around. Lowlight of the Day The lowlight of the day was the limited things we got to see. I feel like there was so much potential to see, but we were denied that. We did not get to see the simulation lab that we were promised. Recommendation for Future PACE Students I would not recommend this career day for future PACE students solely because they do not show you much. The people are nice and willing to show you specific places, but you do not get to see many places of interest.
