Academy Principal Gail Rhodes put her students in the hands of Pare Crowther, Seton Director of Volunteers, and Crowther put together a trip her visitors won't soon forget. Their morning took them to hospital sites as far ranging as a hospital delivery room to the inner sanctum of hospital security. Along the way they met such hospital staffers as RN Laura Rosales, who offered her constant real-world analysis of health care from her profes- sional perspective, and RN Liane Hayes, who described in detail the procedures the hos- pital uses in child delivery. The full group of Academy students finally gathered for a hospital food services lunch of pizza, before getting the opporttmity to meet with and question Dr. Patrick Garcia, Vice President of Medical Affairs, and Herb Dyer, Vice President and Project Executive - Chief Operating Officer for the hospital. Garcia and Dyer described their jobs, lauded the criti- cal work of their professional teams and offered the visiting students their advice and frank answers to serious questions. Paramount was their advice to the students not to limit their expectations and encourage- ment about the proected job growth of health e in this country. The two diiecxed the Academy visitors toward hospital volunteer director Crowther for possible involvement in the hospital's programs in the short range, as part of an exploratory look at healthcare as a profession.

Managing procrastination with your child COUNSELOR'S oes your child put off starting a paper until the last minute? Do you often find him up late, slaving away to finish an as- signment the night before it's due? You may feel helpless watching your child endure the pangs of looming dead- lines. Unfortunately, there is no easy solution. Although you can't do the work for him, your support, encourage- ment, and understanding is important, Start with familiar assign- ments Most assignments your child is given probably re- semble work he's done before. He should estimate how long it will take him based on past experience. It can be helpful to break assignments down into small pieces. Your child should tryto create a concrete plan of when he will work on what. It's a good idea to give himself more time than he thinks he needs in case some- thing unexpectedly takes longer. New Assignments In the case of a new or unusual assignment, your child should try to compare it to other assignments. For example, if he's never wrJt- ten a 20-page paper before, he can assume each five pages of his 20-page paper will require about the same time. He should schedule in COUNSELOR'S cORNER, pg. 4B PHOTO BY JIM CULLEN The forgotten Mustangs Lost in our story last week were two of the faces and all four of the names of Dahlstrom students making this year's Middle School Region Choir.
