HEALYAC 2019-2020: Meeting 1
As the first meeting of the HEALYAC 2019-2020 council, the new members of the YAC, as well as the staff, were introduced. To help members get to know one another, staff led the HEALYAC members through a series of icebreakers. Through these activities, members were able to learn about the diverse backgrounds and experiences of other teens on the council.
Afterwards, Dr. Gina Martin, one of the postdoctoral associates in the lab, discussed mental health and climate change concerns with the YAC. The HEALYAC was asked to share their thoughts regarding these topics.
The members were then directed to another activity that reviewed the values of the council. Different opinions on diversity, collaboration, group dynamics, and participation were shared. The importance of these values was discussed.
Lastly, each member was photographed and asked to complete a profile that was to be posted onto the YAC website. To learn more about members of the HEALYAC 2019-2020 council, click here: YAC 2019-2020 under the Members tab.
