Blood studies

LIFE LESSON - Fifth and sixth graders at Carr Elementary School received a lesson on what is considered the "river of life" for humans. Sue Jones visited their science classes and talked about what makes up human blood. After showing them how to make slides, the students were able to view the white blood cells and red blood cells under a microscope. Jones also talked to them about the various types of cells in the human body and the roles they play in life. Jones graduated from Vanderbilt University in blood banking and medical technology and is retired from Baptist Hospitals. She serves on the board that is in charge of inspections that hospital labs must have to keep their accreditation for the Southeast Region. Jones was visiting her daughter Jennifer Jones' science classes at Carr. More photos from her visit may be found by clicking on the photo galleries link on the main website.
