We help to inspire future generations to serve as peer-health advocates. Our StudentHealthLeaders program is geared towards engaging and empowering John C. Fremont High School youth through health education and campus-wide campaigns to promote the services available at our UMMA Teen Clinic and foster a healthier community.
StudentHealthLeaders attend weekly meetings, conduct peer health presentations, table at health-related events, and lead our monthly Teen Clinic Talks with John C. Fremont High School students. With support from our partners at the Los Angeles Trust for Children’s Health, StudentHealthLeaders complete monthly health education campaigns in the following topic areas: HPV, STD, Wellness & Adolescent Substance Use Prevention (WASUP), and Mental Health. In addition, StudentHealthLeaders highlight important health issues related to lifestyle, behavioral health, UMMA Teen Clinic services, and COVID-19 vaccination through our @UMMATeenClinic Instagram platform.
