Thank you so much for giving us this wonderful opportunity. I cherish every night of Mini-Medical School. My dad and I have always been very close. My interest in the field of medicine stems from my father's profession; thus, it was quite suiting that we take this class together. MMS has given us a night that we can look forward to all week. In our busy lives, it is the one night we know we can spend together. We have taken so many lessons and experiences from MMS I, II and III. One of the most important lessons was the CPR certification (of Mini-Medical School II). It was quite an accomplishment to be certified, but we had no idea how useful it would prove to be. Some time after the certification, my dad, mom and grandma were sitting together, and my grandma started choking. Once my dad realized she needed help, he performed the Heimlich maneuver on her and saved her life. He remained calm and knew what he had to do. My dad will never know how truly proud of him I am. Thank you, Cynthia, for giving us the knowledge on so many important topics. I will always treasure my memories from MMS. You not only taught us about different diseases and illnesses, you also brought a father and daughter together for a priceless experience.Thanks again!
