Career Day (2004)
Trainees: Marc Chinn & Evelina Krieger (Pediatric Residents)
CHPT Site: Children First - Flats Network
Synopsis: Marc and Evelina spent a morning at Washington Elementary School in the heart of downtown Sacramento, talking to children about the profession of medicine, why it is important, why they shouldn't be scared of the doctor and how to follow their dreams and achieve their own goals. Dr. Chinn and Dr. Krieger demonstrated various instruments used by physicians and answered questions from interested students.
The Career Day curricula and materials collected by Drs. Chinn & Krieger continue to be used not just in the Flats community but in other CHPT partner communities as well, to educate and inspire children to dream about their futures and create goals that will help them achieve.
