LFE students visit Saint Mary's Hospital on Heart Health Education5th graders from Lucy Franklin Elementary visited St. Mary’s on Feb. 28 to wrap up their learning experience on heart health. Students were able to go through stations that showed healthy eating options, different types of medical technology and hear from experienced healthcare professionals. Students also had a chance to view and hold an actual pig heart and learned about all the different parts to see how the blood flows through.

“I think it’s a great opportunity for them so they can actually see it and not just talk about it in the classroom. They could see a live heart and what it looks like, talk to the professionals and see if maybe they’d be interested in this kind of career.” – Tiffany Rodriguez, 5th grade teacher at LFE
