Students in the Huntington High School Health, Sciences & Technology Academy (HSTA) recently completed their year-long HSTA project.  They partnered with six doctors from West Virginia University Teaching Scholars Program and held a pre-diabetic screening at the school. 

The group collected survey data and measurements from their peers and school staff to determine their risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes.  The data was collected anonymously.  Medical volunteers took vital signs and collected blood for A1C levels.  Students created a brochure to provide information for those screened on how to seek further medical treatment.   

The Teaching Scholars Program focuses on developing educational theories/technologies as well as promoting educational skills, critical thinking, and innovative approaches among West Virginia University Health Sciences Center faculty.

For more information about the program, please contact Deborah Chapman, Academy Coordinator, by calling (304) 528-6441.
