  • An Apple a Day | Alberta Medical Association
    and 4 school children in Calgary Through classroom sessions medical students will teach about healthy eating by using Calgary Board of Education objectives in a fun and interactive way involving visual aids and creative activities An apple a day keeps the doctor away The prevalence of childhood obesity and diabetes is on the rise The availability of processed foods and a decrease in children s physical activity levels aren t helping either That s why Jody Platt Danielle Carpentier and two of their fellow medical students at the University of Calgary decided to address this issue by creating a program to teach children the importance of eating healthy Prevention plays an important role in maintaining good health and it s so important for children to learn that concept said Ms Platt When children learn good eating habits early they are more likely to continue them into adulthood An Apple a Day was created for elementary students by focusing on healthy eating and nutrition advocacy by teaching children how to make healthy food choices The program was run in several grade three and four classrooms by medical student volunteers It included a presentation about how to read a nutrition label followed by interactive activities and games so the children could apply what they learned The activities included picking which snack was the healthier option from a group of photos drawing a healthy or balanced meal on a paper plate and matching how much sugar is in a serving of pop or juice The kids really enjoyed the activities and particularly enjoyed the healthy snack given to them at the end of the program In addition the teachers liked the program concepts enjoyed how interactive it was and appreciated that their students had a chance to learn from medical students I m

  • Bullying Prevention and Awareness at the Elementary School | Alberta Medical Association
    The project will use commonly available technology to allow small groups of students to film their own short movie after going through a number of learning activities such as a presentation and hands on research or discussion activities by students Teaching kids how to deal with bullying Bullying is a widespread problem that has serious negative effects including mental illness substance use and suicide Several high profile teen suicides e g Amanda Todd and Rethaeh Parsons sparked a Canada wide discussion on bullying prevention and the importance of early intervention Dr Maryana Duchcherer a psychiatry resident physician recognized this discussion as an opportunity to help educate elementary school aged children about bullying We know that bullying has serious psychological and emotional effects on children and their families said Dr Duchcherer I wanted to teach children how to recognize the different types of bullying and to empower them by teaching how to intervene Dr Duchcherer led a team of volunteers which included school staff and other health care professionals to help bring this initiative to life The group decided to target elementary aged children because studies show this is the age group to target They knew that they would need a really fun and creative idea to make the project interesting to the children So they brought in technology and a little imagination Following an interactive presentation on bullying the children were split into groups and given an iPod to make a movie about what they learned Each group acted out a scene which focused on one of the different types of bullying showed an example of the behavior and how to resolve the problem The students then shared the videos and what they learned about bullying with the entire school at an assembly later in the year The program was

  • Medical School at the Calgary International Children’s Festival | Alberta Medical Association
    encourage children to come up with solutions They will also create their own arts and crafts design of what a germ might look like Kids battle bugs Jonathan Seto an Emerging Leaders in Health Promotion grant recipient has volunteered at the Calgary International Children s Festival for many years by helping with various crafts and activities Once he was accepted to medical school at the University of Calgary U of C he wanted to give back to the festival by helping to educate children about hand hygiene It probably doesn t come as a surprise to parents that the one thing children probably share most often is germs If one child becomes sick it seems inevitable all the other ones will too Mr Seto saw a need to educate children about this important topic because most children don t realize how easily and quickly germs can spread He and the volunteers came up with a great way to explain the concept of sharing germs that was easy for children to understand The festival which celebrates creativity was the perfect event to explore the limitless methods pathogens use to infiltrate the body To help demonstrate the concept of sharing germs the children were invited to turn the Infection Prevention Wheel which was covered in a non toxic power that only shows up under a black light A child would spin the wheel which would give them a scenario in which germs are spread For example sharing food with a friend when you have a cold or not covering your sneeze The children were then asked what was wrong with the situation and how they can prevent spreading germs After spinning the wheel and answering the question their hands were put under the black light to show them that they acquired germs from touching the wheel They were subsequently shown how to properly sanitize their hands including under their fingernails and between their fingers The children s efforts were visually reinforced once they placed their hands under the black light again and the powder or germs was gone Using the non toxic powder helped the kids understand how germs are spread without us even realizing it said Mr Seto It s a bit hard for kids to visualize something happening on a microscopic level but this demonstration really helped The children were given construction paper and other art supplies to make their own bugs or germs It also served as a little reminder about the principles they learned about hand hygiene At the same time it was also a learning experience for the volunteers to see how children imagined the virtually invisible bacteria or viruses Getting the kids to design their own bacteria or virus helped them understand the concept at a macroscopic level said Mr Seto It was interesting to see how different the bacteria and virus looked from child to child Mr Seto hopes that understanding the children s perspective of germs will aid in improving educational approaches and activities

  • Mental Health Awareness at the University of Calgary campus | Alberta Medical Association
    a medical student at U of C and member of the mental health awareness student group recognized a need to reach out to fellow students about mental health using a different approach than had been used in the past The group found that most approaches to raising awareness about mental health involved education sessions or distributing information pamphlets In their experience the sessions usually had poor attendance and just handing out information wasn t very effective Education around mental health issues is important but we found students just don t have time to attend an educational session said Mr Mokhammad We wanted to do something that was more interactive and engaging for students to help raise awareness about mental health Throughout the school year the mental health awareness student group set up an interactive booth in high traffic locations on campus to help increase awareness of mental health and reduce the stigma associated with it When students stopped at the booth it provided an opportunity for the members of the mental health awareness student group to engage them in conversation about mental health There s an interesting and complex connection between our physical health and our mental health said Mr Mokhammad It s important for students to remember that mental health is an important part of our overall health The interactive components of the booth included a do it yourself DIY stress relief activity and filling out an anonymous Vent about your FML moments card Around exam time the booth included a stress and anxiety relief component Students were invited to make their own stress balls from a balloon and sand and given bubble wrap to help them cope with some of the pressure This was well received by students who enjoyed having a little DIY project to help reduce

  • Mini Docs: A weekend camp for pediatric Gilberts Scholar volunteers | Alberta Medical Association
    as stethoscopes and bandages Doctor for a day Medical students at the University of Alberta U of A held the second annual MiniDocs event on April 23 This year s annual event was organized by Emerging Leaders in Health Promotion grant recipients Phil Quon and Kerry Wong Kerry and I had participated in the event last year and we really enjoyed it said Mr Quon We wanted to build upon the success of MiniDocs so we decided to organize this year s event Twenty medical students oversaw seven stations each relating to a particular organ system such as heart lungs and bones The medical students would teach the children about the different system and what diseases may affect that system Following the education portion the children participated in a hands on activity like a game or demonstration For example at the triage station children applied the skills they learned throughout the day by diagnosing and treating a mock patient I got involved with MiniDocs because it combined two things I love teaching and working with children said Mr Quon I really enjoyed watching the kids have fun learning about medicine The event was a big success and 35 children participated in the program All of the camp attendees had previously volunteered as a patient for clinical skills sessions Many participants wished MiniDocs could be longer and wanted to come back next year In fact Ms Wong overheard one child telling his parent that he wanted to be a doctor instead of a spy after attending MiniDocs When children begin to learn about different parts of the body it also acts as preventative health care said Ms Wong They begin to recognize how making poor lifestyle choices can impact their health In addition to educating participants about various body systems and
