SCC Students to Help Locals Learn Healthy Habits

Thanks to a $25,000 grant from the California Endowment, Sac City’s Allied Health Department will begin attending local fairs and community events to promote healthy lifestyles. Students will bring the message of water instead of soda, exercise, and dental health to residents of south Sacramento throughout the next several months.

The grant was obtained thanks to help from Los Rios Community College Trustee Deborah Ortiz, who has been a proponent of health information and education for many years.

The department held a kick-off event last week to get the word out to the college and community that it is ready to send our student army out to help teach people these valuable health lessons.
