“Take Your Child To Work Day is an opportunity for us to inspire future health care leaders," said Nikki Sumpter, Chief Human Resources Officer and Senior Vice President, Atlantic Health System. "It is wonderful to share the many ways their parents contribute every day to improving the health of our patients and the communities we serve.”

The day included a medical helicopter landing, visit from Soothing Paws pet therapy dogs, CPR demos, an exercise class, and tours of police cars and an Atlantic Ambulance. New York Jets defensive lineman Brandin Bryant also spoke with the children.
