OSU Mini-Medical School for Kids is Friday, April 1

TULSA, Okla. – Oklahoma State University College of Osteopathic Medicine’s student chapter of the American College of Osteopathic Pediatricians presents a Mini-Medical School for Kids to fourth- and fifth-grade students from Eugene Field Elementary School from 1-2:3o p.m. Friday, April 1, on the college campus, 1111 W. 17th St.

OSU first- and second-year osteopathic medical students conduct sessions where the children will learn about health and exercise, nutrition and anatomy. The goal of the program is to provide information about healthy living, to fight childhood obesity and to show the dangers of tobacco and drug use.

Participants will make a healthy trail mix, find out how hearts and lungs work, discuss the food pyramid, learn more about dental health, and play games, have relay races, and jump rope.

The OSU ACOP student chapter is involved in various community endeavors and strongly promotes educating students on issues concerning children's health. Additional Mini-Medical School for Kids sponsors are the Oklahoma Education Foundation for Osteopathic Medicine, OSU-COM Student Senate and OSU-COM Student Affairs.
