During this online project, your students collaborate as a team of medical professionals to improve the health of their patient who has a preventable medical condition. As students assess and diagnose their patient and then develop the final project, they demonstrate the connection between making healthier lifestyle choices to decrease the chance of developing a preventable medical condition. The project promotes positive health-related decision making, setting lifestyle goals and communicating the importance of making simple behavior changes.
