GI Students Partake in Medical Debate
Buffalo General Hospital was chock-full of debate as local high school students digested and demonstrated their knowledge about organ transplantation. Grand Island students enrolled in an academically competitive Connections program, which is offered in conjunction with Erie 1 BOCES, debated whether the US government should allow the sale of organs for transplantation. Fourteen seniors from Lancaster, Depew, Grand Island, Hamburg and Cardinal O'Hara high schools participated in the annual event. The Connections program, which is part of Erie 1 BOCES' honors-level track called New Visions, is a four-credit program where students spend three hours each day at a designated hospital site taking course work and observing all aspects of health careers. In addition to Buffalo General Hospital, other classes take place at  Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital and Veterans Affairs Hospital. Students who apply are required to demonstrate strong English and communication skills, have completed three years of science, be academically prepared with a proven attendance record and be responsible for their own transportation. Applications are now being accepted for the 2016-17 school year. Students interested should visit www.e1b.org/cte and speak with their high school counselor.
