HEALYAC Meeting 3
During our third YAC meeting, we had master’s students, Drew Bowman and Alexander Wray, present their research projects and education. Bowman introduced her study on food environment audits and Wray presented his education on urban planning. Bowman asked our youth group their opinions regarding food audits and what characteristics of food advertisements catches their attention. She also asked what food vendors our group were most interested in. The YAC shared their opinions and had a brief discussion.
Afterwards, the HEAL YAC entered in a discussion about the important topics involving youth health. Staff co-facilitators stepped out for this activity to allow members to engage in a youth-driven discussion. Topics such as OSNP and SmartAPPetite were discussed.
