On October 14, the Detroit Community Health Connection held their Annual Meeting and Red Carpet Awards Event at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African-American History. At the ceremony, three students from Benjamin Carson High School of Science and Medicine were recognized with a “Youth Award.” The students recognized were: Tayebah Chowdhury, Tasnim Hussain, and Mahbuba Miah.
The award stems from a video they created last school year encouraging their peers to eat healthy. The video was assigned as an interdisciplinary project to create a product to educate their peers about a health-risk behavior. Their client was the Healthy Teens Community Care Center, which is associated with the Detroit Community Health Connection. The students were accompanied by Mrs. Bradlin, their anatomy and physiology teacher. The event started with a board meeting followed by several award presentations. Afterwards, there was a delicious buffet dinner followed by music and dancing. Participants were also able to tour the exhibits at the museum.
