Tipping The Scales

LSSU/John Shibley
 First-graders Charlie Williams (l) and Urijah Plis enjoy twice the fun from a scale that registers twice the weight as both stand on its platform, during a health fair hosted at Lake Superior State University, Sault Ste. Marie, Mich. Looking on are Valerie Hirsch (l) and Omega Hang, both junior nursing baccalaureate students in professor Patricia Kellan’s pediatrics course.
More than three dozen kids from Sault Tribe of Chippewa Indians’ J.K. Lumsden Bahweting elementary school were guests of LSSU nursing students and faculty on Feb. 4 for activities that ranged from a teddy bear health clinic to listening for heart and lung sounds in a pediatric mannequin. Students and teachers also enjoyed lunch in LSSU’s Quarterdeck as guests of President Tom Pleger. Hirsch is from Kalamazoo, Mich.; Hang, from Charlevoix, Mich.
