COLLEGE OF STATEN ISLAND–The Pre-Med club plans to create unique and colorful surgical caps for child patients in hopes of relieving the stress of their upcoming procedures.
“They’re already in a tough environment with parents and doctors telling them what to do,” said Narmin Mekawy. “This gives them a chance to be able to choose for themselves.”
Mekawy, the President of the Pre-Med Club, was presented with the idea to create surgical caps last semester when a member showed the club a video of another club creating the caps for their local hospital.
