Scholars Shadow Healthcare Professionals

Scholars participated in SEEDS’ annual Hospital Day event at Morristown Medical Center (view photos) in April. Each year, Scholars learn more about healthcare professions through this unique experience. In addition to a panel discussion and ethics presentation, students had the chance to visit – and have hands on experiences! – in pediatrics, the NICU, radiology, labs, the operating room, the emergency room, and more.

Scholars continued to prepare for the transition to their selective high schools by meeting with SEEDS alumni. Graduates share stories of their own educational journeys, provide thoughts on their transitions to schools across the country, and answer questions that students might have (view photos).

Students have also been learning what is next for them on their SEEDS journeys. In April, Scholars and their families met with the NJ SEEDS Guidance team to hear more about the services offered for graduates. Scholars Academy Saturdays ended in mid-May.
