CHI Memorial and The Chattanooga Heart Institute, Chattanooga, TN, have donated three electrocardiogram (EKG) machines and supplies to Walker County Schools in North Georgia. The machines will be used by students in health care science classes, part of a Career, Technical, and Agriculture Education (CTAE) program that integrates academic knowledge with technical and occupational skills to prepare students for post-secondary education and the workforce.

“As we increase our presence in North Georgia, we want to be good community partners and provide experiences that can attract high school students to health care careers,” said Melissa Roden, RN, vice president of quality at CHI Memorial. Two of the EKG machines will go to Ridgeland High School, Rossville, GA and one will go to LaFayette High School, LaFayette, GA.
