Thunder Bay Hospital Adds New Trade Show Display from GLM Display to Educate High School Students on Preventable Injuries
Date:8/27/2013

Clear Lake, MN (PRWEB) August 27, 2013

Trade show displays are often used in trade events and sales booths but a hospital in Thunder Bay, Ontario is using trade displays to raise awareness on serious health issues among young individuals.

The Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre is a state-of-the-art acute care facility that specializes in providing healthcare for residents of the Thunder Bay and Northwestern Ontario area. But while the TBRHSC is known for its cutting-edge healthcare practices, it is also recognized for raising awareness on a variety of health issues, including preventable health injuries.

Shelley Chisolm, Regional Injury Prevention Coordinator at TBRHSC, says that preventable injuries should be a top concern among teenagers, young adults, parents and educators. One of Chisolm’s many initiatives is an education program geared towards high school students called P.A.R.T.Y (Preventing Alcohol and Risk Related Trauma in Youth).

For Chisolm, the P.A.R.T.Y program has been an integral part of educating teens and high school students on the risks of preventable injuries.

“Preventable injuries are the leading cause of death for [the] youth,” Chisolm says. This makes education, awareness, and the eye opening experience of what happens on the other end of a bad decision that much more important.

Chisolm realized that the TBRHSC needed to take their efforts a step further by allowing students to experience what it would be like in a real life trauma room. But since a completely new trauma room designed solely exhibition purposes would be far too expensive, Chisolm and her team did the next best thing.
