Hadassah Enhances Health & Lives In Israel, US & Worldwide

Amy Degen, chair of Nashoba Valley Hadassah with PAVE (Providing Academic and Vocational Experience) students at Groton-Dunstable Regional High School.

Dear Editor, 

   I would like to thank the PAVE (Providing Academic and Vocational Experience) students at Groton-Dunstable Regional High School for their community service helping Nashoba Valley Hadassah fill 400+ folders with over 4000 pieces of health literature for its CHECK IT OUT® program.  The Hadassah CHECK IT OUT® program has educated over 17,000 high school juniors and seniors, at local high schools, including Groton-Dunstable Regional High School about breast and testicular cancer as well as other health concerns and good health habits.  The CHECK IT OUT ® program has provided health education to Groton-Dunstable Regional High School for over 20 years.

    The PAVE students help this year was instrumental.  The folders are a resource intended to be shared with friends and families.  They contain information on health topics for teenagers and are given out to the students during the CHECK IT OUT® presentations.     Thank you to all the teachers who helped coordinate this community service project including Mary Ruggles Desmond, Laurie Keough and all the staff personnel.

   Through education, advocacy, and youth development, and its support of medical care and research at Hadassah Medical Organization, Hadassah enhances the health and lives of people in Israel, the United States and worldwide.
