I’m late on these, but I wanted to get them up because I thought they were pretty interesting. This year’s class of Red Sox Scholars was given a tour of a few departments at Beth Israel Deaconess hospital, including the NICU and the Center for Minimally Invasive Surgery.
It was neat to see some of the things they showed us, including a breathing, blinking, talking manikin used by medical students to learn surgical techniques.
The scholars then had a holiday party with games, like the cookie drop above, which made for some hilarious photos. It was also great to have Olympic gold medal judo fighter, Kayla Harrison, at the party.
