North Carolina Central University students worked with Durham Public Schools, May 19 through 23 to address health disparities experienced by African-Americans and other minority groups.

NCCU students assisted in first-grade classrooms each day this week at C.C. Spaulding Elementary School, 1431 Roxboro St., as part of the “Healthy Children-Healthy World” community health, service-learning research project.
