"I want to study medicine and want to help people and I love taking care of children. I don't know exactly what I want to do [in my career] but this presentation helped me learn about other professions in the hospital outside of being a doctor and a nurse. I learned a lot about CPR and I never knew animals could provide therapy to people. I feel like it's great that UCLA does everything they can to make people feel better while they are here. After I saw this presentation, I want to work at UCLA when I am older. I have come to this hospital four times now, and after today's presentation, I want to volunteer to learn more about the hospital."
"I really liked how UCLA Health brought along the EMT's to our presentation. At first I had no idea how to do CPR but after we saw the demonstration I feel like I could do it. Seeing this presentation is a great start to my career path and it makes me want to go into one of [UCLA's Center for Pre Hospital Care] programs to get involved in healthcare"
