Thank you to INTEGRIS Grove Hospital’s Matt Henderson for planning a very exciting day for the Health & Human Resource session of Leadership Grove 2020.

The class also witnessed a “birth” while Reina Speer demonstrated a mannequin that actually birthed a “baby”. Lastly, a trip over to EMS with Jeff Dozier and his knowledgeable staff who demonstrated some emergency medical techniques including a trip around the lot in the ambulance. The class is currently wrapping up their class project which will be an evening fundraiser at Shangri-La.
