Mini Medical School Set For Kids



Oklahoma State University College of Osteopathic Medicine students will present the Mini-Medical School for Kids to fourth- and fifth-grade students from Eugene Field Elementary School from 1-3 p.m. Friday, April 20 at OSU Center for Health Sciences.

“The program gives OSU medical students the opportunity to share their knowledge and interact with the students from our Partner in Education school,” said Robert Wittrock, a second-year medical student and organizer of this year’s event. “In addition to promoting a healthy lifestyle, the students also get an introduction to careers in medicine.”

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

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

The event is sponsored by the OSU American College of Osteopathic Pediatricians student chapter, which is involved in various community endeavors and strongly promotes educating students on issues concerning children’s health.
