SUNY Oswego students from Dr. Minjung Seo’s Health Promotion Program Planning class completed their semester-long project with residents at St. Francis Commons in Oswego.

Students spent afternoons at St. Francis Commons interviewing residents, as part of a class project that teaches students how to develop and implement evidence-based health promotion programs.

SUNY Oswego Wellness Class Completes Fall Semester Projects at St Francis Commons 11 18B2

Students are seen explaining the prevalence of the risks older adults face as part of a lesson on falls prevention.

Students conducted a series of interactive lessons aimed at specific health issues, such as diabetes, arthritis or most recently, falls prevention strategies. 

This has been a great experience for all involved. Not only was this fun and educational, but everyone enjoyed the interactions and friendships that developed over the course of the last few months. We are looking forward to getting started when the Spring semester gets underway in a few months!
