MESH: First Trip to the Pico Youth Family Center

It’s Week 10 so that means I am studying for finals so I apologize for the delay on content!

Wednesday, I went to my first site outing with MESH. We started a program where we go out to the youth center and give presentations on various topics. We were told that they don’t all have to be health-related, but the main point of going there is to educate the youth on health; especially blood pressure.

That day was a lecture on Stress and Anxiety. This topic is often overlooked especially with teens and minorities. It felt good letting them know that it is okay to have some stresses and anxieties and work on relaxing techniques for the bad stresses and anxieties.

Not much to update on, but I have more coming today.
