Students at Caldwell High School had the opportunity to learn what it's like to be a Doctor for a Day on Wednesday, Jan. 12! Doctor for a Day was presented by the Family Medicine Residency of Idaho and SW ID AHEC. CNA, Pharmacy Tech, Medical Assisting, Mental Health Assisting, and Health Occupation students learned from six real-life medical doctors in their second year of residency with Family Medicine Residency of Idaho. One of the residents was Craig Cowling, a 2008 graduate of Caldwell High!

Students were split up into three different groups to learn about diabetes, and had the chance to do physical exams, eye tests, and imaging in labs.

Many thanks to Katrina Hoff from Southwest Idaho AHEC and Dr. Sarah Gerrish from the Family Medicine Residency of Idaho for conceiving the idea, helping with the planning, and coordinating the doctors. Thanks also to Theresa Sigel and Brian Sullivan from Caldwell High's Health Science program, who worked hard at organizing and planning the event on the school end.

The residents are open to providing online mentoring for some of the students serious about a career in the Health Sciences. This is the first year Caldwell High School has done Doctor for Day, and they look forward to continuing it in the future.

Connecting Students to Careers. Professionals to Communities. Communities to Better Health.

Rural Children More Likely to Report Positive Childhood Experiences.

While studies have shown rural children face higher rates of many adverse childhood experiences – also known as ACEs – new research aimed at distinguishing urban-rural differences finds factors that may give rural areas an edge in positive experiences. These include a greater likelihood that children volunteer in their church, school, or community; they are more likely to have a mentor for advice or guidance; and that they are more likely to live in a safe and supportive neighborhood.
