Students to Dream Up Ideas About Sleep

- SHSM students visit sleep clinic-

Students in the Health & Wellness and Communications Technology Special High Skills Majors from General Amherst and Kingsville District high schools have been tasked with developing a campaign to promote proper sleep hygiene to their peers.

On Friday, March 2nd 40 students will participate in a learning opportunity at the Windsor Sleep Disorders Clinic between 9:45 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Sleep hygiene has been identified as a priority for students in the GECDSB's Mental Health & Well-being Strategic Plan.

The SHSM students will review the equipment used at the clinic to diagnose sleep disorders and discuss proper sleep hygiene with the staff. As well they will learn about the different career pathways followed for employment in the field.

The group will then use what they have learned to develop a communications campaign for high school students.
