WTC health science students to treat car accident victim Thursday in real-life scenario

January 28, 2020

WTC Logo Woolard Technology Center (WTC) Health Science students already know that they will be working to save the life of a car accident victim this week.

Thursday's scenario is part of Prisma Health’s SimCOACH outreach program to help students practice complicated medical procedures without posing a risk to real patients.

WTC—and current Kershaw County School District Teacher of the Year—Anna Harvley received a grant from the SC Hospital Association to provide this hands-on learning opportunity for her 48 students.

“I am very excited to have this program brought to our campus to allow our students to participate in this experience and to put their knowledge learned in the classroom to practice in a real-life scenario simulation,” Harvley said.

Media are invited to cover the story on Thursday from 8:30 to 11 a.m. or 12:00-2:30 p.m. Woolard Technology Center is located at 70 Innovation Way, Camden.
