Our healthcare system is specialized & focuses on “body parts.” Causes people to feel dispirited.

45 minute activity

Full group exercise

Use newsprint to show answers.

Students can use Notes Page in their Guide

Ask youth to identify health problems that they know their grandparents or parents have.

You have a list of 14 likely conditions in the Guide to prompt youth.

List their ideas on newsprint. Leave a space next to it to go back and fill in the kind of doctor to treat that condition. (10 minutes)

Now ask them to identify the kind of doctor that treats each problem.

If they don’t know, every condition is matched by a specialty in your Guide.

Write their answers next to the condition in different color marker

(10 minutes)

Mind, Body, Spirit Activity (Page 1)

Once the list is completed with the specialists, tell students that the average older person has at least three health conditions. Ask them:

What problems could this cause? (Such as keeping appointments, driving there, being prescribed different pills.) (5 minutes)

One older person said, “I just feel like a bunch of body parts. Nobody treats ALL of me.” Discuss how this person must feel. Why?

(5 minutes)

“Well being” isn’t just about being physically and mentally well…it also means the spirit is well.

Read this parable & ask youth to discuss what it means: (10 minutes)

“A happy heart does well like a medicine: but a broken spirit dries the bones.” Proverbs 17:22

Mind, Body, Spirit Activity (Page 2)

  • At the end of the discussion, reinforce the message that entering a health career is blessed work and that they are helping people heal Mind, Body and Spirit.
  • Ask each youth to take out the awareness wristband in their kit and place it on a partner’s wrist.
  • If you know of a spiritual or popular song for students to sing to reinforce the message, now would be a nice time to do so. (5 minutes)

Morning Report Care Plan (Page 1)
  • Prepare yourself by reading over the Care Plan Directions and the Health Career Occupation descriptions in the student guide.
  • Ask students to take out their scrub from their kit and read the back of it. They should also look up the corresponding health occupation in their Guide. (5 minutes to study their occupation).
  • Now they can put on their scrub. Let them know that if they want to trade scrubs with each other for another career after the event, they can. But right now their job is to represent the career on their scrub.

The goal of this activity is to:

Familiarize youth with a health career.

Get them to apply the skills of their career to a case.

Show them how they must work as a team in health care.

The activity lasts 60 minutes

Read out loud Nikkea’s case.

Break up into groups (6 to 9)of at least one of each profession in every group.

They are to fill in the chart in their Guidebook as a group & individually:

Identify the occupation(s) & what they can do to treat Nikkea’s problem.

Let them know they can use their Guide to look up answers.

Your chart has all of the answers. Make copies for other adult facilitators for each group so they can give youth suggestions.

(25 minutes)
