If you are a teacher, a student, or a parent, please contribute your ideas to Health Equity Initiative’s development of ready to use educational materials on health equity for middle and high schools!

Health Equity Initiative is in the process of developing ready to use educational materials(and related resources, PowerPoint presentations, games, and modules) to help schools integrate information on health disparities/health equity as part of social studies courses, and health or PE classes in middle and high schools.  These free resources will complement suggestions for sample activities you can already implement in your school to raise awareness of health disparities as part of our Sports for Health Equity national shoot-a-thon program (for more information and instructions on how to organize a basketball shoot-a-thon visit the Sports for Health Equity page.

The ready to use educational materials will become available as a free download from our website in 2013.  We are speaking with different schools but would love your opinion on tools, games, information, and any other resources you think may address students’ preferences and curiosities on this topic.  If you are a student, a parent, or a teacher in middle or high school, please comment here! We welcome your input!  Thank you in advance for your contribution to this educational effort that aims to build awareness of health disparities in your community and to encourage community action among the next generation of leaders!!!

 

Do you know that the place where you live, work, and age may affect your health and/or the health of your loved ones?

    My school would like more information regarding the importance eating healthy foods. During lunch time, the majority of students will not eat the foods that are nutritional, like fruits & vegetables. Instead, they rather eat hambugers, french fries, pizza & sodas on a daily basis.
