Teens Reaching Teens: SHAREing Information about NLM

The aim of this project is to recruit a cohort of high schoolers to complete the Project SHARE (Student Health Advocates Redefining Empowerment) curriculum created by the University of Maryland and as key collaborators the teens will help plan and implement a community outreach event targeting other teens, specifically with the goal of improving awareness and access to NLM resources for this population. The curriculum will be supplemented by local guest speakers and field trips. In addition, the capstone project for the participants will be the creation of posters where the teens will incorporate NLM resources, such as MedlinePlus with what they learned during the training program. These posters will be on display at the community outreach event that will be implemented as a part of this project, during this time the teens will have the opportunity to present to teen attendees and other community members.
