Outreach for health

First-year medical students Philip Sinatra and Heather Kong talk with middle school students at the Red Rock Day School on the Navajo Reservation in Red Valley, Ariz., about diabetes, obesity, leading a healthy lifestyle, exercise, healthy eating and portion control. A group of first-year medical students traveled to Arizona and New Mexico during their spring break March 30-April 6 talking with middle and high school students about a variety of topics, including health, alcohol and tobacco use, the effects of methamphetamines, getting into college, seeking financial aid and personal concerns. The medical students also shadowed physicians at two Indian Health Services health centers.
