St. Lawrence Health System’s Canton-Potsdam Hospital participates in the ‘Let’s Not Meet By Accident’ program, part of the STOP-DWI Traffic Safety program. The idea is to impress upon young drivers the dangers of impaired and distracted driving. Here, Jessica E. Martin, PA, in the Emergency Room, demonstrates on a medical dummy what they do with an accident after on-the-scene care by rescue squad personnel. Over 100 Potsdam Central High School sophomores were shown the possibly disastrous results of driving while under the influence of a substance, or while texting. Students also visited the ambulance bay and the morgue. SLHS photo.
