Dr. Wei helped organize the Fifth Annual Applying Science in Medicine Day, a collaboration between the LIJ Department of Medicine and Bayside High School’s Science Department. Besides CPR, physicians discussed “Multitasking: Distractions and Driving,” “Wheeze Free Lungs: Examine Lungs in Asthma and Smoking” and “Advances in Reducing Heart Disease” with participants via hands-on demonstrations.
