This Life and Career skills activity provided an opportunity for students to be educated about the functions of a stand alone children’s hospital directly from one of its staff members. Dr. James Schneider, attending Pediatric Intensive Care Unit physician and Director of the Hofstra Medical School Fellowship program visited students at JFK to describe the functions and team members of the various supports encompassing the health care available at the hospital.

Additionally, this activity provided a way for our students to show their appreciation to the staff at Cohen’s Children’s Medical Center who work effortlessly to improve the lives of children in this area. The students created gift baskets with homemade cookies and wrote hand made thank you cards to the staff members. Principal David Schneider and Family and Consumer Science teacher Tom Scarola visited the hospital and delivered the baskets on behalf of their students.
