Étude students advocate healthy habits at biennial health fair

SHEBOYGAN - Wednesday, November 8th Human Anatomy and Physiology students of Étude High School held an every-other-year health fair with the focus of informing students, staff, and community members on healthy habits and health education.

The health fair serves as a way from students to investigate and understand why we study human anatomy and physiology, to be healthy ourselves, this according to Karen Robison, Life Sciences Teacher at Étude High.

On Wednesday, thirty students presented nineteen different projects ranging in topics from circadian rhythm, to organic food, to sex education.

1.1 Seniors Tatiana Feirro and Briana Kraus presented their project on lung disease, common causes, diseases, and medications. Fierro and Kraus want people to understand the common symptoms and preventative measures that can be taken. Kraus urging to check family history.

1.2 Junior Ariana Damrow and senior Kera O’Connor shared their research and snacks with attendees demonstrating nutritious snacking habits. O’Connor and Damrow gave out cucumber slices with self-grown microgreens. O’Connor claimed it was,”healthy way to snack.”

1.3 Seniors Pom Hoffman and Jacob Folz tabled their results from a carbohydrate tracking experiment the two conducted on the Anatomy and Physiology class. The primary goal of their project was to “break misconceptions about carbs,” Hoffman stated. And, to educate people about the risk of consuming too many carbohydrates, such as type two diabetes.

1.4 Three senior team of Zoe Farrell, Casey Jordi, and Veronica Williams engaged onlookers with a  pin-it style game to educate people on reproductive anatomy. Their project, sexual education advocacy. Jordi stated that due to the high number of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and teen pregnancies sexual education was needed.

1.5 Julie Krentz, a junior, also advocated for sexual education with a focus on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, plus (LGBTQ+). Krentz pointed out that many states either don’t require accurate information or require sexual education to depict LGBTQ+ relationships in a negative light. Continuing to claim that including LGBTQ+ sexual education “...fosters a more accepting community.”

1.6 Junior senior team Alexis Theune, Devin Thrill, and Cade Fredrichsen hooked attendees with a matching game. The game was comprised of a series of assorted vegetation and name cards requiring attendees to match the two. The intent “advocate for organic foods and vegetable knowledge through an interactive name game,” according to Theune. The team also presented information about how to obtain organic foods locally as well as their comparative cost.

1.7 Briana Finley, junior, and Destiny Montemayor served various water beverages to show the benefits of drinking more water. The two left out a jar of cucumber water that all attendees could sample through paper cups. Their intentions prompt people to “drink water, flavored or not,” according to Montemayor.

1.8 Senior Jessica Bloise presented sleep clocks and information regarding the circadian rhythm, the body’s “internal clock.” Bloise pointed out that in an individual’s teen years activities such as work and school as well as hormones disturb this rhythm. Bloise instructed attendees to “set a sleep goal,” and to,”keep [the goa] the same.”
