Welcome to HealthWISE!
Health=Winning Investigations for Students from Elders
An innovative program that trains, matches and supports pharmacy students in elementary schools to teach science. Pharmacy student "elders" are trained through a unique "HealthWISE" elective course taught at the pharmacy school and are matched with local elementary schools to improve science education with the HealthWISE curriculum.
OBJECTIVES:
  • PHARMACY STUDENTS receive training to teach the HealthWISE curriculum through a unique course offered by a sponsoring pharmacy school. All instructor and student resources are provided to sponsoring pharmacy schools

  • SCHOOLS welcome pharmacy school students and match them with a teacher who assists them to be successful in teaching elementary students science with the HealthWISE curriculum.

  • TEACHERS AND STUDENTS access HealthWISE curriculum and training online for the improvement of science education at elementary schools

  • FAMILIES benefit from HealthWISE Science Education Family Events which the schools sponsor with the assistance of pharmacy students utilizing the HealthWISE Family Event Manual
