Project MED HEALTH
Medical Students Helping Educate Adolescents to Live Tomorrow Healthy
This is a program in health education created and organized by dedicated students at Boston University School of Medicine. It aims to educate children about key health issues in the 21st century to guide them toward developing healthy lifestyles.
Educate youth about age-appropriate health issues
Create interest in health maintenance and science among younger generations
Empower medical students to make a difference in the lives of children
Build a strong partnership between Boston University School of Medicine and local public schools
Program consists of one to two workshops per week for one month (Flexible)
Medical students design and lead the interactive educational sessions
Workshops are based upon an evidence-based curriculum: The Great Body Shop or Glencoe Health (according to grade level)
Topics may include: human body, growth and development, illness, nutrition, physical fitness, safety, violence prevention, substance use, relationships, sexual behaviors, and/or bullying.
Students will work closely with principals, nurses and teachers throughout the program
Project has been approved by the Office of Research, Assessment, and Evaluation and funded by a grant for community service projects
As future physicians, we hope to apply our knowledge and skills to educate youth about healthy practices. We are excited to work with children to make a difference in their lives!
