Exploring Pharmacology with High School Students: “Your Body on Sugar: Diabetes Explained”
Sat, Jan 26th 12-1PM in Meyerson Hall
Pharm4GOOD has partnered with Upward Bound at UPenn to teach a pharmacology-themed curriculum as part of their “College Prep Saturday” program. Graduate student volunteers will work with small groups of students during a hands-on activity. Students will measure the amount of sugar in soda, apple juice and fresh apples and learn how the body converts sucrose into glucose. The activity will be complemented with a lecture that will de-mystify how and why people living with diabetes metabolize sugar differently and how diet can play a role in their overall health.
