The McGavock High School’s Youth Public Health Institute (YPHI) was presented with a check for $500, courtesy of Metro Public Health Department Adolescent Health Programs and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The money will be used to assist the program students’ public health service projects and encourage more healthy participation within the community.
YPHI is an Association of Schools of Public Health that helps increase awareness of public health careers and post-secondary opportunities for Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools. With this association students have learned public health policies, programs and prevention activities. In the spring, the students will host a “Fun Run” for families within the McGavock community.
