SHARE - Student Health Advocates Redefining Empowerment


SHARE Project Aims

The HS/HSL has a long and successful history of collaborating with community members across the state of Maryland to improve health by providing quality health information. We have expanded our role in improving health with an innovative program designed to help students develop lifelong skills in health advocacy. 

By building on the University of Maryland’s relationship with the Vivien T. Thomas Medical Arts Academy (VTTMAA), a magnet high school in Baltimore City, HS/HSL is teaching future health professionals the skills to advocate for better health at the personal, family, and community levels.

The three primary aims of the SHARE project are to:

  • Empower high school students as community health advocates
  • Promote improved health and reduce health disparities in Baltimore neighborhoods
  • Develop a replicable student health advocacy program.

To sustain the impact of SHARE, the HS/HSL program is designing a model curriculum that can be used by community-academic partnerships nationwide.

This project is funded by the National Library of Medicine Award Number G08LM011079
