Health Careers and Living a Healthy Lifestyle

Dr. Mary Hass was on campus to speak to 7th and 8th grade students about the importance of making healthy choices.  

During this presentation, Dr. Haas was able to answer a variety of student questions.

On April 20th, we will be taking a bus to Regional Health Services for a tour and informational session about Health Careers. NICC, Regional Health, and Crestwood High School have partnered to offer students an opportunity to tour the hospital and visit with a panel of employees.

Mock Crash

On Friday, April 7th, sophomores, juniors, and seniors at Crestwood witnessed firsthand the devastating and sometimes permanent effects that making poor decisions, such as texting, drinking alcohol and/or using drugs, can have on those who choose to do so and get behind the wheel through a “mock crash” demonstration.

During the mock crash, law enforcement and emergency personnel from throughout Howard County worked together to, first, demonstrate to students the tragic realities of responding to vehicle crashes and then meet in the auditorium at Crestwood High School to speak about personal experiences and encourage students to make positive life decisions.

The goal of a mock crash is to educate teenagers about the tragedy of traffic crashes — and to reinforce the importance of seat belts, paying attention behind the wheel and to show the consequences of driving impaired.

A Girl Like Her

Space was limited for viewing the mock crash so we were not able to have our freshmen view it this year. During this time our freshmen, in their Homebase groups, viewed a documentary-style film, A Girl Like Her, that addressed the topic of bullying.  

A Girl Like Her is a fictionalized documentary-style film about two teen girls: a high school sophomore who attempts suicide and the other 16-year-old who's revealed to be her bully. This movie looks at things from the bully's perspective -- after the victim is in the hospital.

A Girl Like Her also provides a much-needed way to engage teens in thinking and talking about the subject of bullying (from either side) and how to stand up to it -- or at least inform someone about what's going on.
