Meet Sofia Griffin, one of Get Healthy SLV’s Service-Learning Aides. Access to health care is very important and personal to Sofia. As a child Sofia suffered from a deformation on the sternum which affected her heart and lungs.
Read Sofia’s story and find out why its soo important that individuals get the care they need when they need it.
Just like adults, youth have a strong role to play in advocating for increased access to health in their community. Whether promoting physical fitness, a healthy breakfast, or a bully-free environment, youth can be champions for health.
