Charter Promise Mentoring Academy

Twice a month, medical students travel to the Charter Promise School in Camden. They divide themselves among four 5th grade classrooms to provide interactive lessons on a wide range of health topics. Such topics range from nutrition to smoking to healthy body image. Another interactive lesson includes a tour of human anatomy including demonstrations with real organs. Students are also given the option of choosing a lesson based on the desire of the class.
