Health Careers Awareness and Healthy Lifestyle Support and Research at Friendship Charter School

Defining Moments is working with The Friendship Edison Charter School in Washington, D.C. to stimulate the development of partnerships between community based organizations, schools, and health professionals, exposing underrepresented minority (URM) and disadvantaged students to health careers, introducing health career curriculum, improving academic achievement, and promoting healthy lifestyles through education.  The program is intended to provide models that can be replicated and utilized by schools (middle and high school), community based organizations and other educational or health related entities, in partnership to increase the interest, preparation and pursuit of health careers among URM and disadvantaged students.  The final product will be the demonstration of an innovative educational curriculum and a technical assistance presentation detailing the implementation of the model, intended to enhance and support the portability of the program.
