Title: Empowering Pre-Health Students Through Outreach and Experiential Learning: The Development of a Student-Led Diabetes Prevention Program
Lead Presenter: Cynthia Gray
Date: October 07, 2020    Time: 11:00 am - 11:45 am
Room: Poster
Abstract: Learn how one cohort of pre-health students moved from 'wanting to help people' to engaging deeply in community work and understanding the complexities of health and wellness in an underserved rural community. Active mentorship helped students realize how they could leverage the scientific principles learned in their biology coursework to address a community-identified need: diabetes education and prevention. Students and community collaborators, including their pre-health advisor and a local physician, created a Type 2 diabetes prevention program aimed at inspiring real change through education, conversation, and fellowship.
