St. Benedict Students to Attend P.A.R.T.Y. Program at Sudbury Regional Hospital
Students from the Grade 12 Society class at St. Benedict Catholic Secondary School will be attending the P.A.R.T.Y. Program (Prevent Alcohol and Risk Related Trauma in Youth) at Hôpital Régional de Sudbury Regional Hospital on March 1, 2005 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. The P.A.R.T.Y. Program is a nationally established one-day in hospital injury awareness and prevention program for youth. The program targets teens to educate them about the consequences of poor decision making in relation to risk-taking behaviours such as drinking and driving, lack of seatbelt use, not wearing a bike helmet, etc.
Students follow the course of injury from occurrence, through transport, treatment and community reintegration. During this day they interact with a team of health professionals directly involved in the care of trauma patients including paramedics, nurses, physicians and therapists.
