Students gain 1st-hand understanding of the medical field

On Thursday March 15, the AP Biology and AP Chemistry classes went on a tour of the LAC + USC nursing school labs, the USC Health Sciences campus, the NICU at the LA County General Hospital, and a research lab facility at the Keck School of Medicine.  The students got to see a patient simulation lab at the nursing school and got first hand knowledge of what a NICU nurse does each day. Junior Christel Alino commented "My favorite part was visiting the NICU and seeing all the babies. I loved learning more about the medical field and I aspire to be like the doctors I met!"
