High schoolers from across region get chance to observe a live surgery at Christ Hospital

Hundreds of high school students from across Greater Cincinnati, including a number from Northern Kentucky, will have a unique opportunity on Tuesday, Oct. 28. They will observe a live surgery at The Christ Hospital, take a tour and lunch at The Christ College of Nursing and Health Sciences.
The 16th Annual Live Surgery Experience, presented by the nursing college, is intended to give students interested in healthcare careers a chance to see firsthand the varied professionals who work in the operating room. Students from 25 area high schools and The Greater Cincinnati Health Council’s TAP MD Program are scheduled to observe a robotic hysterectomy via a video feed to the hospital auditorium.
Students from 25 additional schools will also observe on their own campuses via webcast. All students will have the chance to interact with operating room personnel through a moderator during the procedure and ask surgeon Dr. Marcia Bowling, an obstetrician and gynecologist, questions at the conclusion of the surgery.
Northern Kentucky schools participating include:
• Bishop Brossart High School,
• Campbell County High School,
• Conner High School,
• Covington Catholic High School,
• Dixie Heights High School,
• Gallatin County High School,
