HHS Youth Residency Program Featured on WGN

Huntley High School’s groundbreaking Youth Residency Program in partnership with Centegra Health System was featured on WGN News January 24.

The video below follows a few of the 24 students who are participating in the program, which began this year.

“It can get pretty crazy in here. It’s really hectic, and it’s a lot of moving parts and people working together. But I think that team aspect is kind of what makes it work,” senior Maddie Moffett told the station.

Moffett is among the program’s inaugural participants. Among other experiences on rotations in different departments of the new Centegra Hospital-Huntley, she has worked in labs, observed patients in the emergency department, and assisted in a live birth and newborn care.

The program is believed to be the first of its kind in the country. Click the link below to view the full video and article on the WGN website.
