On Friday, March 9th, students from Two Rivers and Mount Si High School took a field trip to the Snoqualmie Valley Hospital. Students were greeted by the Chief Executive Officer, Tom Parker, and Director of Pharmacy and Imaging, Ron Bennet. Mr. Parker and Mr. Bennet lead students on a tour of the Emergency, Rehabilitation, Pharmacy, and Imaging Departments.
After the tour students, hospital staff and healthcare professionals in Snoqualmie participated in a Round Table Q and A. Students had an opportunity to engage with healthcare professionals from a variety of careers such as: physical therapy, mental health, nutrition, pharmacy, personal trainer and wellness coach to name a few.
Students shared their appreciation for the opportunity to talk with different people in the healthcare field. Students walked away feeling more focused and informed on the variety of career paths in the healthcare field.
Through the Career Exploration Friday program, students get real life exposure to exciting career opportunities thanks to the partnership between the Snoqualmie Valley Chamber of Commerce, the Snoqualmie Valley School District, and the Snoqualmie Valley Community Network.
On behalf of the partnership, thank you to the staff at the Snoqualmie Valley Hospital for hosting such an exciting opportunity for the youth in the Valley.
