Health Classes at Newell Middle and High Schools Gain Additional Topics

The physical education classes at the Newell middle and high schools gained additional, alternative topics in recent weeks, reports the Black Hills Pioneer. Topics addressed ranged  from environmental health, maintaining a healthy relationship, and careers in outdoor science and emergency medicine.

Students were visited by a variety of professionals with careers related to health. Jason Boerboom, a district conservationist with the National Resource Conservation Service discussed environmental health concerns with the students, including soil health, watershed work, water quality, and environmental regulations. Emergency medical technicians with the Newell Ambulance Service offered the students demonstrations of some of their work, including loading a gurney and putting a neck collar on a patient.
