Careers in Sports Medicine and Nutrition

On January 28, 2017 students from different regions of CT including Cheshire High School attended the Code One CPR training through the Careers in Sports Medicine and Nutrition (CSMN) program. Code One training is a by product of the American Heart Association, where CPR, AED and other life support courses are available for samaritans. CSMN provided high school students with CPR and AED training and also gave students an opportunity to practice CPR and AED on dummies in order to provide proper care. 

Along with CPR training, CSMN also incorporated team building activities so the students get a chance to familiarise faces. In the team building activity, students were put in groups and had to accomplish challenges that required out of the box thinking, collaboration and communication.

In general the CSMN program is about focusing on career pathways in sports medicine and nutrition. This program is designed to help build effective communication skills, between high school students and their peers. This is also a great way to help build confidence and self-esteem in students; in addition, it is a great way to make new friends from different schools and backgrounds. High school students with interest in this area will find it beneficial and will get hands on experience in sports medicine. By the end of this program, high school students will have gained much knowledge, practice and confidence that will help them throughout their lifetime and future career.
