  • Live From Surgery at Health Sciences Academy at MMS

    On Wednesday May 23rd, 30 eighth grade students from HSA at Monroe Middle School participated in a virtual field trip called Live from Surgery, hosted by the Liberty Science Center in New Jersey. Scholars took part in a live video conference with Dr. Camacho from Beth Israel Hospital, New Jersey. Dr. Camacho has conducted over 600 heart transplants and shared her expertise on LVAD devices and heart transplants with HSA at MMS scholars. Throughout the program scholars were able to ask Dr. Camacho questions that they had about the heart and surgery itself. We were joined live by three other high schools, HSA@MMS being the only middle school participating. Scholars watched clips from two surgeries. The first was the implementation of an LVAD device, and the second was a heart transplant surgery. In a post survey, all of the scholars that participated said that they learned a lot! One scholar stated that he learned how delicate the heart truly is. Another scholar concluded that becoming a surgeon may not be for her because of the amount of schooling, but she realized that there are other pathways to being involved in surgery and in medical field. Another student said that he liked understanding how the transplant heart is sewn into the body.
