West Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Sanford Health and West Fargo Public School's STEM Center are partnering to learn about the benefits of integrating healthcare and education.

Twenty-five STEM Center and High School staff members met with representatives from Sanford Health's Office of Continuous Improvement for professional development training day.

The group talked about ways to reduce wastes and create an action plan for bringing together healthcare and education in the classroom.

Michelle Waber, STEM Middle School Principal: “As an educational institution we're a pipeline to all of our businesses and industry in this community and so if we can give students real world problems to solve, and they can exercise those skills and what they can learn to do, they're going to be better prepared for the work world.”

West Fargo's STEM Center now teaches about 250 students, grades six to eight.
