Ledyard Charter School and Two Medical Students Team Up to Investigate Nutrition and Science – Valley News

Read article – A feature story about medical students Emily Dollar DC ’14, MED ’19, and Emily Georges, MED ’19, who crafted a curriculum for the Ledyard Charter School in Lebanon, N.H., as part of Geisel’s Rural Health Scholars. The curriculum includes providing students with case studies on different health and nutrition issues. “When I was volunteering here with a group for girls, two of whom had just become young mothers, the subject of food kept coming up as something we felt needed to be covered,” says Dollar. “So when (head of school) John (Higgins) mentioned that he was hoping to be able to provide lunch and breakfast to all the students, I immediately knew I wanted to help him out.”
