Health Care Programs Unite to Present: 
THE HEALTH CARE TEAM OF TOMORROW


by Linda Smith, Chair of Allied Health

Here is your opportunity to witness a life-saving team effort to handle a hospital emergency. Join us on November 14, 2001, at 4 p.m., in Rennie Forum Lobby, Largo Student Center. The sound of an ambulance will announce the arrival of the patient. You will be asked to take your seat in Rennie Forum to witness this life-saving team event. Faculty and students from our health programs will present a dynamic simulated emergency code with voice over narration to help explain the code scene to the lay person. This will be the college’s version of the popular TV show ER.

Following the Code Simulation, Winfield M. Kelly, Jr., president and chief executive officer of Dimensions Healthcare Systems, will describe the importance of the health care system for citizens of Prince George’s County. He will also point out the rewarding job opportunities for prospective students who wish to become members of the Health Care Team of Tomorrow.

Guests will have an opportunity to speak with faculty about the health programs at Prince George’s Community College.

We in the Health Technology programs are excited to invite the college community and the public to this open session. It will be a great opportunity for faculty and students to see how the various disciplines function together as a team. This "team" will include an EMT-paramedic, a doctor, nurse, respiratory therapist, radiographer, nuclear medicine technologist, and health information technologist. Team members will be selected from students in the second-year of their respective programs.

Invitations are being extended to all faculty and staff, students in pre-requisite courses, our advisory board members, our clinical affiliates in the community, and High School Career Academies in Health and Biosciences. For further information, contact Linda Smith, chair, Allied Health Department on 301-322-0740.
