More than 400 high school students and parents visited New Rochelle High School for the 3rd annual healthcare careers interactive fair sponsored by NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital. Students from public and private high schools throughout Westchester were invited to gain hands-on experience and speak directly with doctors and other health professionals about career options. Students learned how to intubate and suture mannequins; examine the chambers of a cow’s heart; scope a knee under the guidance of an orthopedic surgeon; and use laparoscopic instruments as if they were performing an actual surgery.

The more than 60 participating professionals included NYP Lawrence Hospital physicians, ColumbiaDoctors, NewYork-Presbyterian Medical Group Westchester, physical therapists, pharmacists, dietitians, physician’s assistants, first responders, medical students, and other allied health professionals. “This has become one of our team’s favorite events, because it allows us to participate in the education of the next generation of healthcare professionals. We are a community hospital and we very much want to be a vital part of the Westchester communities we serve.” Said Michael J. Fosina, MPH, FACHE, President of NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital.

The popular event has been coordinated with different local school districts for the past three years with two physicians spearheading the effort. “Always looking for avenues to give back to the community, our healthcare staff eagerly jumped at the opportunity to show students first-hand what our medical profession entails hoping to inspire a passion for a career in medicine to future generations.” said Matilda M. Taddeo, MD, an Internal Medicine and Cardiology specialist at NewYork-Presbyterian Medical Group and co-coordinator along with Susan Campanile, MD, who added "I am so proud of our NYP Lawrence staff that came together and volunteered their time to interact with students and share their love of medicine.” Dr. Campanile is an Associate Professor of Medicine at Columbia University Medical Center and physician with ColumbiaDoctors.
