Med Squad Club learns how to spread tobacco awareness from guest speaker. Leah Mahan!
Med Squad Club provides students with opportunities to learn about careers in healthcare. Once per month they focus on bringing in guest speakers to help inform students about healthy habits, medical careers, and other topics that relate to the medical field. This month they had a tobacco prevention specialist as their guest speaker. The students learned how to spread tobacco awareness to our campus and promote healthy lifestyles. They were able to see different models of the body that had been damaged by smoking and tobacco. The students were intrigued by the models that were once healthy organs that were completely damaged due to repeated usage of tobacco products. Now our Med Squad Club can take the facts and information that they learned and help spread awareness throughout our campus. We love getting to learn from our community partners and we appreciate Mrs. Mahan coming to speak with our GMS students!
