Just Action Talks with Kara Rubio, Healthy Schools Coordinator, Women for a Healthy Environment

Tuesday, November 10, 2020
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM

Cost: Free

Kara spends a lot of her time diagnosing and designing environments to be healthier spaces for people and especially students and school staff - to work, learn, and play. To do this, she brings teams of people together, including students, custodians, school leaders, and parents, around a shared goal. She also writes and teaches curriculum on environmental health through a citizen-science and problem-based learning lens to investigate how to create healthier and safer communities. As a public health practitioner, she thinks about the health of entire communities rather than just the health of one individual patient and advocates for healthy schools for every child in Pennsylvania.

This series of Just Action Talks is offered at a 6th grade level of vocabulary. They are intended for K-12 students, and are open to any age. These informational interviews are intended to expose students to the variety of jobs available in the field of sustainability. After the adult describes a normal day at their job, what they love about their job, its challenges and what it took to get there for about 15 minutes, the dialogue becomes open to Q & A. Chatham students are welcome to attend. Please try to keep vocabulary at a 6th grade level while asking questions to help make the workshop age inclusive.
