Hendrick Hudson Students Tour Hudson Valley Hospital Center Labs

 

Cortlandt Manor, NY - (April 30, 2012) Histology, hematology, microbiology: words that Hendrick Hudson High School students learned about in class came to life during a recent tour of the laboratory at Hudson Valley Hospital Center.

Two groups, totaling more than 20 students, from the schools' “Project Lead the Way” program visited the lab on April 20 and 27 to learn about laboratory science as part of a college-level science elective offered to students in grades 9-12.

Laboratory Director Sue Hyatt explained to students the different types of analysis conducted at the lab and showed them the latest equipment used to analyze blood and tissue during the tour.

Jeanine Hall, who teaches principles of biomedical science, said that the visit helped students to visualize what they had been learning in class.

“The students had a very enlightening experience – the hands-on nature of the lab tour was wonderful,’’ said Hall.
