Student Health Advocates Redefining Empowerment

For the past three years we have been developing a curriculum funded by a Health Information Resource Grant to Reduce Health Disparities. The first two years were spent working with two cohorts of high school students here in West Baltimore and the last year was spent slogging through curricular development and writing.

Today I am pleased to share the following:

News from the Health Sciences and Human Services Library, University of Maryland Baltimore

Student Health Advocates Redefining Empowerment (SHARE) Project Curriculum Released

The Health Sciences and Human Services Library, University of Maryland, Baltimore announces the release of the Student Health Advocates Redefining Empowerment (SHARE) Curriculum http://guides.hshsl.umaryland.edu/projectshare. This curriculum was developed as the result of a three-year Health Information Resource Grant to Reduce Health Disparities (G08LM0011079) from the National Library of Medicine. The grant aimed to empower high school students as community health advocates, improve health in Baltimore neighborhoods, and develop a replicable student health advocacy program.

The entire curriculum consists of six modules. Each module can be used independently as well. The modules are:

1. Overview of Health Disparities
2. Quality Health Information
3. Taking Charge of Your Health
4. Smart Food Choices
5. Crafting and Delivering the Message
6. Promoting Health and Wellness in Your Community

These modules were developed after working with two cohorts of students from Vivien T Thomas Medical Arts Academy in Baltimore. In addition to detailed lesson plans, each class has assignments and handouts and is aligned with national standards. Supplemental activities are also provided. In order to build a community around the curriculum a blog is available to share ideas and suggestions and discuss the curriculum.

For more information, please contact Project SHARE at share@hshsl.umaryland.edu

I hope you will find this curriculum useful and share information about it broadly.

Regards,

M.J.
