Bring Back Home Ec — and This Time, for Boys, Too!

In Contra Costa County, Calif., a high school student juices six oranges to make eight ounces of juice, downs it in 12 seconds flat, and says, “I’m hungry, what’s for breakfast?” A second student cuts up six oranges, taking 15 minutes to eat five of them, and says, “I think I’m going to be sick, I couldn’t eat another bite.” These students are participating in a pilot program to bring the lessons of food to an otherwise unsuspecting population, our nation’s impoverished youth.

Health academy brings real-world experience to school

Inside a lecture room at California Pacific Medical Center on a recent morning, Donald Torres asked 15 students from Galileo High
whether they’d heard of nuclear medicine. Just one boy tentatively raised his hand, but by the end of the hourlong session, Torres, chief technologist in nuclear medicine at the hospital, had ensured they were all quite familiar with the subject. They discussed complicated terms including diagnostic imaging and radioimmunotherapy and passed around containers Torres uses to store radioactive material. It may sound complicated for a high school course, but the students soaked up the medical terminology and other information like sponges. They’re part of the Galileo Health Academy, which doesn’t rely on decades-old textbooks and multiple-choice tests. Instead, it introduces students to the real world of medical care — with many of the teenagers already certain they want to become doctors, nurses and other hospital workers.
