NAC students gathered on Saturday, May 11, for the last Chapman Visiting Scholars Series lecture of 2012-2013 school year, featuring Chapman’s own
Dr. Lisa Sparks
with her presentation, “Community-Based Health Campaigns: Be An Innovator!”
Dr. Sparks opened the presentation by defining “health literacy” before exploring scenarios that highlighted the importance of clear communication between medical professionals and patients or their families, which also extends to communication about heath concerns within communities. Students also worked in small groups to create campaigns to bring attention to issues like teen drug use, healthy eating options at home and at school, and the effects — good and bad — of parental and peer influence.
