Students Participate in Annual Trauma Day
UNC Hospitals hosted its annual Trauma Day over three separate days in July for teenagers who spend the summer working in UNC Hospitals Volunteer Services Program. This event, led by UNC Trauma Care, promotes the prevention of distracted driving behavior among teenagers.
The students volunteered to help with the simulation of a real-life case involving a patient injured during a distracted driving incident. Using high-fidelity simulation techniques and equipment, UNC Hospital providers led students through the continuum of trauma care, from pre-hospital care through admission of the patient to intensive care.
UNC Hospitals offers a variety of volunteer opportunities for students. Those who are interested should apply at uncmedicalcenter.org/uncmc/support/volunteer-services/high-school-volunteers.
