Diabetes PSA by JCHS Health Students Seeks to Raise Awareness

Posted by John Peck in General

Students in a HOSA future healthcare professionals group at James Clemens High School produced a Public Service Announcement (PSA) on Diabetes Awareness that has caught the attention of the state of Alabama.
The group qualified for State with their creative "Pre-Diabetes:  Stopping the Runaway Train" PSA.
They will be attending state competition in Montgomery.
"This group of students have put in a significant amount of time and effort outside of school to create this PSA in order to best target a wide range of the population from teens through adulthood," said Ashley Steinert, health science teacher at James Clemens. The PSA seeks to convey the emotional impact that Type II Diabetes (which is what Pre-Diabetes will lead to if changes are not made) may have on families.
Group Members are:  Kyndal Oden 12th Grade (Plans to attend the University of Alabama next Fall), Lauren Parker 12th Grade (Plans to attend Brown University next Fall), Battle Clayton 11th Grade, Matthew Cole 11th Grade, Alana Osborne 11th Grade, and Jenil Patel 11th Grade.
The PSA is available in the following link.
