On Monday, October 27 you will be visiting Evander Childs or DeWitt Clinton High School. As you make your way to the schools this morning, we would like you to think about the foods that are available to kids and teenagers in the Bronx.


Imagine that you are a student heading to (or from) school on a Friday with about $3.00 in your pocket. This is your money to spend on what you want, and you’re hungry. You need something that is quick and ready-to-eat, and you want to get the biggest bang for your buck.


Your short to school takes you past many businesses where you can pick up something to eat and drink. Please complete the following survey for each business that sells food and beverages (regardless of whether their primary business is food or beverages).

This activity takes place on the way to the school visits and you do not need to come to the RPSM first

1) Work in four teams of 3-4 each. 2 teams will go to Dewitt Clinton; 2 will go to Evander Childs Educational Complex: 800 East Gun Hill Road, Bronx, NY 10467.

2) Each team will work one side of the street.

3) This data collection form from Dr. Sean Lucan will give you answers to very specific questions.

4) Post your results on the following website:

Those kind of people”: Exploring the impact of “otherness” on clinical care
Matt Anderson 

In this exercise we will present you with six cases.  We would like for you to break up into groups of four (or five) and study these cases over the weekend.  On Tuesday, November 2 from 1-4PM each group will have 30 minutes to first present the case to the entire class and then lead a discussion.  We suggest you keep your presentation of the case to five – ten minutes so that there is time for discussion.
