Be a volunteer and make a difference in your community. This project was part of the learning for a group of 70 freshmen interdisciplinary (nursing, health and exercise science, nutrition and dietetics) students taking the course Personal Health Management. Several community agencies (Blood Bank, Special Olympics, Lung Association, Boys and Girls Club, Wellspring, American Cancer Society, Arthritis Association, Food Bank, Second Harvest, YMCA, MOT Senior Center) had agreed to join this partnering activity and had ongoing projects that the students could join, while welcoming new ideas for projects/events from the students. The project was one of the "action lines" for several of the course concepts, such as time management, group membership and leadership, physical activity, and personal responsibility, while underscoring the concept of the positive impact of helping others on one's health. Groups of 5-7 student developed both individual and group goals and objectives and submitted a final report highlighting their accomplishments and providing personal reflections on their experience. Feedback from both students and agencies indicated that although very time consuming and challenging to coordiante group work, the experience was extremely beneficial personally and professionally. Coordination with the cooperating agencies also proved challenging for students. The outreach and student learning, however, outweigherd these obstacles. This project provided valauble learning for all students as they learn to work collaboratively for a common goal in their community. In addition, it provided students with health career interests an opportunity not only to learn together but to share a unique experience related to their chosen profession.
