Health Information Equity among Underserved Communities

This project seeks to make accessible for students, their families, and members of the larger community health information by creating a robust educational learning experience across grade levels. Middle School Students will engage in creating health informational materials including brochures, videos, and presentations in English, Urdu, Arabic, Spanish, and other languages to disseminate information on healthy practices that will keep underserved populations safe from the risk of COVID -19 and its variants. The project is bold in its outlook and seeks to create and provide rigorous and multi-faceted programing to its students.
