Our topic of choice was “Health Awareness.”  We chose a broad title so there would be several opportunities to educate on specific ways to promote health awareness. The focus was the “how” and “why” regarding the process of becoming sick.  We gave a basic overview of how germs work and are subsequently spread in the right conditions.  Through understanding the process of how to prevent germs from entering the body, illness can be prevented by employing simple techniques to break the chain of infection.
