The Medical and BioScience Academy (MBSA) of Longmont High School is designed for students interested in careers or post-secondary education rooted in the health sciences. One of the elective classes is Nutrition and Wellness. The students in this class will create public service announcements for the LHS community. Some will be aired on our morning announcements while others will be shared with health teachers to play when relevant to the curriculum. They will also host a wellness fair with some hands on activities related to their topic in the library at lunch. Some of the topics will include: type 2 diabetes, vaccinations, proper sleep and eating habits, smoking, texting and driving and the reasons to limit screen time. In addition to our online databases, students will use medlineplus to gather information related to their topic.
