North Carolina Central University

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.

From 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., university students helped with literacy activities. From 2 p.m. to 3:45 p.m., the university students led lessons and coordinated activity stations focusing on Smoking Prevention, Germ Busters, Stress Busters and Healthy Eating.
