(LONDON, Ontario) – On Wednesday, 260 grade nine students will get an inside look at a career in health care as they participate in Take Our Kids to Work Day at London Health Sciences Centre’s Victoria and University Hospitals.
In addition to receiving career information, special tours, and shadowing their parents, students will have the opportunity to hear from guest speakers A.J. Fordham and Kathryn Field. Fordham speaks on the subject of injury prevention as he shares his powerful story of overcoming a severe traumatic brain injury and Field shares her personal story of how a moment of distracted driving can change a family forever. Media are invited to attend this special presentation.
Take Our Kids to Work Day gives students a chance to explore future job prospects in health care, while giving LHSC staff the opportunity to showcase what they do and how it impacts the community. As an acute care teaching hospital, Take Our Kids to Work Day is an extension of our commitment to life-long learning and education.
