Health Career Explorations Sessions PLUS Don't Sugar Coat Diabetes

We are pleased to announce a temporary addition to our regular campus visits. Student visitors will receive an introduction to the UT Health San Antonio's programs, conversation about career exploration and have these coupled with an exciting hand-on session by our medical students! This special session will introduce diabetes by using various anatomical models, interactive simulations, and informative presentations. By emphasizing preventative lifestyles that include increased activity, healthy diet, and weight reduction, the presentation will teach the students how to reduce risk for diabetes. Students will complete an evaluation survey about their knowledge and confidence about diabetes before and after the presentation. Please sign up for a regular campus visit, but on the notes section, please note that you are choosing the DON'T SUGAR COAT DIABETES session.
