Crystal Run Healthcare Provider Justin Conway, MD Participates in 'Scholars in Scrubs' Program


Middletown, N.Y. – August 13, 2018 - On July 11th, Crystal Run Healthcare Primary Care Sports Medicine provider Justin Conway, MD joined the Middle School Scholars Summer Camp at the Newburgh Armory Unity Center (NAUC) to participate in their Emergency Care Day. Dr. Conway and program director, Linda Romano, BSN, RN used hands on training to teach students lifesaving techniques including lessons on how to perform CPR on friends and family and how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED). Students had the opportunity learn important lifesaving medical terms and demonstrate teamwork while practicing their new CPR/AED skills.

The ‘Scholars in Scrubs’ program offers a beginner and advanced course to provide students with hands on learning opportunities in the field of healthcare. Students from NFA volunteer throughout the year at the NAUC to help run the program which is part of a larger initiative, “Kindergarten through Careers”. This initiative was started to help students break down barriers to success by building literacy and math skills in local youth while exploring diverse careers in the healthcare field.

“I was privileged to be able to assist with CPR Training for the Scholars in Scrubs program at the Newburgh Armory Unity Center. Led by the fantastic educator Linda Romano, the middle school students were engaged and excited to get hands on experience with these life saving techniques. It was an honor to work with them,” said Dr. Conway.
