In recognition of "Bring Your Child to Work Day," kids of Methodist employees got the opportunity to check out what their parents do for a living. The kids shadowed medical professionals and enjoyed various activities.
They learned about everything from x-rays to maintaining a healthy diet. Methodist says it's a way to get kids interested in health care.
"One, we want the kids to be a part of our family at Methodist, to have a respect for what their parents do. Because what we do it sacred work. And secondly, it's a recruiting tool. We want young people to get excited about careers in health care," said Jen White, manager of employee engagement at Methodist Medical Center.
Thirty kids enjoyed a day at the hospital. It's the first time Methodist has held the event in three years.
