The Josie Harper Campus partnership has opened opportunities for Central students to experience new settings and enhance their scientific knowledge. Science students are learning on the NMC campus by working in their cadaver and phlebotomy labs.
"The opportunity to take our students into working labs and give them hands-on experiences is invaluable," said Jean Whitten, CHS Science Department Chair.
NMC is also sponsoring the Science Club and provided lab coats for Central High School students who go into elementary schools and perform and assist elementary students with labs.
In addition, NMC provided free medical tests and assessments for CHS staff. NMC faculty checked blood pressures and blood sugars, provided diabetic and nutritional informational materials and answered health-related questions. Cholesterol screening with immediate feedback was also offered.
