How can we work together to make our community healthier?

Everyone is invited to attend the Final Presentations where 6th graders from Flint Community Schools will report the findings from Community Action Projects to answer the question, “How can we work together to make our community healthier?”.

The students have been studying Type 2 diabetes in science class as part of a new curriculum called, “Health in Our Hands: What Controls My Health?”. They discovered how genetic risk factors and environmental factors such as poor diet or lack of exercise, put them at risk for disease. For their final project, students conducted an action research project to improve their school or neighborhood to help prevent or reduce diabetes.

The public is invited to this free, district-wide, family-friendly event.
