Denver Health hosts Camp KinderMed for studentsPublished 3/31/2010

Denver Health’s Denver Emergency Center for Children hosted Red Rocks Elementary School kindergarteners for Camp KinderMed, Friday, March 26, for a hands-on medical demonstration.

Camp KinderMed introduced the kindergarteners to the main body organs, concepts of health and nutrition.

The students rotated through various stations, including one with a toxicologist who demonstrated "which-is-a-pill and which-is-a-candy"; an ultrasound physician who took x-rays of the child’s heart and let the child keep the picture; a simulation lab with a breathing, blinking mannequin; and a Denver Health paramedics and ambulance.

Students also learned the importance of wearing a safety helmet as a melon was dropped from atop a ladder to simulate what can happen to the head if it is left unprotected and a head injury occurs.

Denver Health is the Rocky Mountain Region’s Level 1 academic trauma center, and the safety net hospital for the Denver area. For more information, visit www.denverhealth.org.
