Cooper Career Day Gives New Perspective on Health Care

On Thursday, April 26, 2018, about 70 students in the 5th through 12th grades came to Cooper University Health Care for Cooper Career Day, part of Bring Your Child to Work Day. Throughout the day, students learned about the different roles our Cooper team members play in the hospital to ensure that we’re able to carry out our mission: To serve. To heal. To educate.

From interpreter services, information technology, and nursing education to tours of the lab, an EMS ambulance, and the Ronald McDonald House of Southern New Jersey, students were kept busy with hands-on demonstrations.
