Teachable Moments-Mile Square Health Center

Mile Square is a community based health center providing service to underinsured & low income populations on the near West side of Chicago. Two (2) nutrition peer educators conduct weekly waiting room learning activities on each floor of the health center. Topics are selected based on the audience receiving the information. People participating in the learning activities are asked to complete a short survey and then given an incentive. Upon completion of the survey, questions that were not answered correctly or any questions that were stimulated by the material are then discussed one-on-one.
