BizTown Health Ambassadors

BizTown Health Ambassadors

Junior Achievement partners with the Center for Healthy Air Water and Soil to create Health Ambassadors and a Community Health Researcher Job within Sam Swope BizTown.

The Center for Healthy Air Water and Soil and Junior Achievement of Kentuckiana have partnered to create a Community Health Researcher job within JA's Sam Swope BizTown!  Just like the Envirome's team of researchers at the University of Louisville this Community Health Researcher will observe residents of BizTown, conduct research through a survey about health, and present their research findings.

Be a BizTown Community Health Researcher at Home

The Center for Healthy, Air, Water, & Soil and Junior Achievement of Kentuckiana have created three opportunities for students to become BizTown Community Health Researchers at home. Just like the Envirome's team of researchers at the University of Louisville, students will:

          1) Learn about healthy air, water, and soil,

          2) Form a research question and hypothesis, 

          3) Conduct experiments, and

          4) Present research findings to UofL from home!

BizTown Health Ambassadors

When JCPS students attend Junior Achievement's BizTown, they will learn about the connections between the environment and health from their Community Health Researcher.  They can also choose to learn about the Circle of Harmony and Health and how it can be used as a framework to help people understand and reflect on their health.
