Congratulations to the HIOH team! The Health in Our Hands project leaders were invited to present at the prestigious American Public Health Virtual Annual Meeting held Oct 24-28, 2020.  

Health in Our Hands is a community inspired project-based learning approach to science teaching and learning for middle-school. It engages students in learning about modern concepts in genetics by focusing on critical health concerns such as diabetes and addiction. As a “community-inspired” approach to science education, HiOH equitably involves teachers, students, family, and community in all aspects of the learning processes. It connects science learning to students’ communities, bringing in students’ cultural background and family experience as a resource and asset for learning.

This presentation was dedicated to Dr. Toby Citrin, Health in Our Hands Executive Administrator and Professor at the University of Michigan School of Public Health.

HIOH is housed within the CREATE for STEM Institute at Michigan State University and is generously funded by the National Institutes of Health - SEPA.
