Medical Student Service Project: The Everest Project at Dalhousie University

The Everest Project is an initiative by Dalhousie University Medical students' society aimed at reducing the health-related consequences of inactivity. As you are likely well aware, Nova Scotia has the dubious honour of having amongst the highest levels of chronic disease in Canada—much of this burden of disease could be eliminated through the adoption of healthy, active lifestyles. As the physicians of the future we have put forth a program where medical students get actively involved in the health education of Nova Scotian youth.

The Everest Project is an interactive, hands-on program where medical students teach Grade 4 classes about the importance of physical activity and other healthy lifestyle choices. The project started in 2002. A curriculum and "tutor guide" for medical students was developed and modified based on feedback from several sources.
