PBS 3.1.1 Blood Detectives

Hematocrit  "CRIT"

 The hematocrit measures how much space in the blood is occupied by red blood cells. It is useful when evaluating a person for anemia. Blood drawn from a fingerstick is often used for hematocrit testing. The blood fills a small tube, which is then spun in a small centrifuge. As the tube spins, the red blood cells go to the bottom of the tube, the white blood cells cover the red in a thin layer called the buffy coat, and the liquid plasma rises to the top. The spun tube is examined for the line that divides the red cells from the buffy coat and plasma. The height of the red cell column is measured as a percent of the total blood column. The higher the column of red cells, the higher the hematocrit. The hematocrit test can also be done on an automated instrument as part of a complete blood count. It is also called Packed Red Cell Volume or Packed Cell Volume, or abbreviated as Hct or Crit. The test is covered by insurance when medically necessary. Results are usually available the same or following day.

H&M Public Health Opportunity

I would like to inform you about a unique opportunity for your students: the first Health Equity High School Summit hosted by the University of Michigan School of Public Health and The Health Equity Leadership Pipeline Collaborative in the Health Management and Policy Department.

Taking place on March 24th at the School of Public Health, the summit’s mission is to introduce high school students to the discipline of public health and health disparities. To expose high school students to the complexities of addressing health disparities, they will engage in a team case study competition, have the opportunity to interact with health professionals and students, listen to a renown public health professional present a keynote speech, and participate in a series of workshops on broad health disparity topics. The summit will be an all day event, free of charge, and food will be provided. This is when YOU become essential to the success of the summit! We are seeking support in spreading the word about this opportunity and were wondering if you would be interested in encouraging your students to sign-up. Is there any parent listserv that this announcement could be sent out in? This program would be particularly beneficial for any student interested in social justice!

Students can register today at Spots are limited, so we encourage students to register as soon as possible!

The conference webpage can be found using this link:
