Palmetto Health Project Ready

Palmetto Health, believes that since risk-taking is a natural part of adolescence, our youth need the opportunity to see the consequences of their choices. We're working to accomplish this goal through Project READY (Realistic Education about Dying Young), our reality-based education program that exposes adolescents to the Palmetto Health Richland Level I Trauma Center.

During a Project READY session, participants will:

  • Talk with trauma surgeons and Emergency Room (ER) doctors
  • Touch and feel the real equipment used to treat injuries in the operating room
  • See inside a real ER, trauma bay, and morgue
  • Witness a pretend trauma patient scene in the ER
  • Interact with physical, occupational, and speech therapists and experience firsthand the daily challenges experienced by injured trauma patients

Interested in attending an upcoming session? Call 803-296-CARE (2273) to register.

You must register to participate. Presenters in our sessions may include the South Carolina Department of Public Safety, the State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) or the National Safety Council of South Carolina (“Alive at 25” program).

Some presentations will include graphic images of injured trauma patients which may be disturbing to teens. There will be adult supervision during sessions (parents may drop-off and pick-up their child). A light breakfast and lunch will be provided to registered participants.


  • Must be ages 13–21
