Twin Rivers Health Science class is taught by Carmen Cross, RN. It is a health sciences career exploration program that offers effective career and technical education to high school students. Twin Rivers Health Sciences class serves high school juniors and seniors from 7 high schools in Greene and Sullivan counties. The 7 high schools served are: Greene County-Bloomfield High School, Linton-Stockton High School, Shakamak High School, and White River High School and in Sullivan County-Union High School, North Central High School, and Sullivan High School.
Students in the Twin Rivers Health Science class learn basic entry-level patient care skills necessary to meet needs of the health care industry and/or to give them a head start on continuing their education in college. In addition to basic care skills, students will learn Medical Terminology, diseases and disorders related to body systems, communication skills, ethics and confidentiality, as well as life and employability skills.
Students gain valuable hands-on experience in the community at many health care facilities, who partner with Twin Rivers to offer this valuable experience. These experiences, along with the classroom work, help our youth in determining what career path to follow after graduation from high school. The students also participate in a state and national student-led career and technical organization-HOSA Future Health Professionals. HOSA is a national student organization that is endorsed by the U.S. Department of Education and the Health Science Education Division of ACTE.
