What does science, live surgery, and a cadaver lab have to do with the Saratoga Resort?
Susan Wallace, Saratoga Resort General Manager, explains:
Well, I recently chaperoned the local high schools to SERI (Spine Education & Research Institute) in Denver CO and I was so impressed with our trip, I just had to share with everyone! We started out watching a live surgery and being able to ask the surgeon questions, then we had three speakers who spent time talking to the students about going on to college and living their dreams. Then finished the first day going bowling and yes my team were winners!
Next day, we spent a few hours in the cadaver lab and wow what an experience that was. If a student is interested in the medical field, this was the place to decide whether or not this is the field you wanted to study. It was hands on and so educational with the SERI interns leading the way.
This opportunity given to these local rural students was more than they expected and is something I am sure will never be forgotten. Now, what does this have to do with the Resort. Well, we have a Science Summer Fair scheduled for July 11th-13th to be held at the Resort. Click here for more details and to register for the next event. The SERI staff did such a great job that I have no doubt this will be a great summer project for us to host!
