FinCap Friday

For the EdPuzzle version of this activity, click here.

This week's FinCap Friday takes a look at a news story that keeps surfacing every now and again. As rare as it may seem, a medical emergency is something that we should be prepared to handle. Many people don't plan ahead or think about how to protect themselves and their families until it's too late! Find out more about the medical emergency that was even scarier than most below: 

If you prefer not to use the online Kahoot quiz, we've added a no-tech version here, with the questions embedded in the presentation deck!

Check out all of our FinCap Fridays here. They're not date-dependent so any of the ones in our catalog can work throughout the year.

Tim Ranzetta

Tim's saving habits started at seven when a neighbor with a broken hip gave him a dog walking job. Her recovery, which took almost a year, resulted in Tim getting to know the bank tellers quite well (and accumulating a savings account balance of over $300!). His recent entrepreneurial adventures have included driving a shredding truck, analyzing executive compensation packages for Fortune 500 companies and helping families make better college financing decisions. After volunteering in 2010 to create and teach a personal finance program at Eastside College Prep in East Palo Alto, Tim saw firsthand the impact of an engaging and activity-based curriculum, which inspired him to start a new non-profit, Next Gen Personal Finance.
