GL students observe surgery

Greater Latrobe Senior High School teachers Linda Kubus and Jen LeVan, along with students Jake Shaulis, Pearl Russell, Piper Pardee, Riley Baughman, Teko Angelicchio, Giovanna Jones, Isabel Trice and Geina Shaker, had the opportunity to recently observe an open heart surgery at Allegheny General Hospital. The observation program provided by AGH allows students to observe the procedure from a window in the operating room. The surgeon wears a camera and microphone so that students can see and hear what is going on, as well as interact with the surgeon and ask questions. Greater Latrobe has been participating in AGH’s surgery observation program for the past six years.
