Helping Empower Adolescents Learning Through Health HEALTH Info aims to provide local high school students with the knowledge and skills necessary to empower others within their school and community to address health disparities. High school students from underrepresented populations going into their junior or senior year will be recruited from public and charter high schools across Philadelphia. This program will utilize the Project SHARE curriculum, which was developed by the University of Maryland. Students will attend a four-day summer training conducted by the Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences at Temple University. In addition to learning about health disparities, participants will be exposed to a diverse set of health careers in public health. Participants will learn how teams of health professionals work together to solve complex health issues. At the end of the training, participants will develop an action plan to implement within their schools or communities. From the completion of the training through December, program staff will conduct bimonthly follow ups with participants to provide technical assistance and support in helping them achieve their program related goals.
