Grade 11 students at St. Charles College will be attending the P.A.R.T.Y. Program (Prevent Alcohol and Risk Related Trauma in Youth) at Hôpital Régional de Sudbury Regional Hospital on October 26, 2004 starting at 12:00 p.m. The P.A.R.T.Y. Program is a nationally established one-day, in hospital, injury awareness and prevention program for youth. The program targets teens to educate them about the consequences of poor decision making in relation to|
risk-taking behaviours such as drinking and driving, lack of seatbelt
use, not wearing a bike helmet, etc.
Students follow the course of injury from occurrence, through transport, treatment and community reintegration. During this day they interact with a team of health professionals directly involved in the care of trauma patients including paramedics, nurses, physicians and therapists.
