OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Area kids will get a first hand look at what can happen if they make the wrong choices today.

"Dusk to Dawn," a nationally-acclaimed program, allows at-risk teens a chance to check out the trauma center at UNMC/Nebraska Medicine, as well as other parts of the medical campus.

Dusk to Dawn is a 2.5 hour program which begins in the trauma bay where kids can relive the final moments of one young man’s life as violence stole his life at the age of 20.

Organizers say the goal is to encourage teens to make better decisions and avoid risky situations.
