LEWISTOWN — Medical Assistant students from South Hills School of Business & Technology recently visited the Penn State’s Health and Science Lab at the Lewistown Center. Through the use of medical simulation models, the students were able to practice various skills required within their healthcare field. Rebecca Isenberg and Brooke Kinsey look on as Angela Henry prepares to perform a venipuncture. The simulation arm looks and feels very much like a human arm with “blood” under pressure, and the innovative model gives immediate results if the venipuncture is successful.
