MENOMONEE FALLS -- Students from Menomonee Falls High School helped put kids at Ben Franklin Elementary through preventative vision screenings Wednesday.
The high school sophomores are part of the MFHS Healthcare Academy -- a three-year program designed for students who hope to one day work in the healthcare industry.
"We have a curriculum that is designed with a healthcare focus," said Healthcare Academy Coordinator Jennifer Tarcin. "They learn medical terminology, they learn ethics, they learn things like healthcare records."
She said the program also exposes students to about 40 hands-on, career based experiences during a three-year span. Those include Wednesday's vision screenings.
The high school sophomores were trained to test the elementary students using an eye chart.
