Abstract:

As a group, we reached out and worked with the community through Needwood Middle School. We were able to incorporate and apply education learned throughout nursing school as well as undergraduate classes.  We were able to incorporate the respiratory system, the brain, and our pediatric class specifically when it came to deciding on how to address this specific age group. Finally, we were able to truly understand and experience the importance of primary prevention in the community.
