This week’s cameo blogger is Meaghan U.! One of the first characteristics you will notice about Meaghan is that she has the best attitude, no matter what she has encountered that day. She is always prepared for class and ready to take on that day’s lab or activity. I’m glad she is taking this class, because she has unfortunately experienced a sports related injury that has impacted her ability to participate in soccer (read more about this in her post on Athletic Trainers). Please check out her overview of our class last week and feel free to comment on her website!
We have had a lot going on this week! First of all, at the beginning of last week, we finished posting about a lab on heart rates and what it looks like to have a heart attack. We learned more skills about using technology and other applications to get our data across and to use the technology to our advantage to learn more about our hearts.
We also started to learn a lot more about heart disease. Mrs. Kahn walked us through a powerpoint she made about women and heart disease and it was incredibly interesting to hear more of the facts. We learned that heart disease is the leading cause of death in women in the nation (more than the next 5 reasons combined!). This really opened my eyes to how serious heart disease is and how important it is that I get educated and spread the word.
