AUSTIN, MN — Health officials from five states made their way to Spamtown today.

That’s because Riverland Community College was the site for the Minnesota Simulation Conference.

It provided both professional development and learning opportunities for those who attended

And health experts say healthcare simulations labs, like the one at Riverland, offers chances to gain valuable experience.

“You can provide education and training whether it’s for people who are still in school or people on the work site,” Amy Wangen of Riverland Community College said. “To learn how to work together better, to have different experiences to different types of scenarios.”

People who attended also had the chance to experience a simulated disaster.

That included acting and taking care of patients.
