    Hi Everyone,
    I am trying to work on my supplemental applications quickly. I have a question about the UACP one. I am not sure what this question is really asking. I am confused.

    Part of your curricular assignment will require you to perform 50 hours per academic year of community service to learn about and address healthcare issues and concerns pertinent to the Central Appalachian region. You will work with school-aged children and other citizens of the region to educate them about preventive healthcare, dietary issues, dental hygiene, and medication compliance. Furthermore, you will participate in community assistance programs and in outcomes assessments of collaborative clinical trials and healthcare and wellness projects. In order to teach preventative healthcare it is crucial that you are pursuing and represent a healthy lifestyle that includes physical fitness, the avoidance of tobacco, illegal drugs, and excessive alcohol use. You should be objective about whether you can effectively serve as a role model in this regard.
    If you cannot serve as a role model in this preventative health care program and desire a community service project other than educating others about wellness and healthy living, thus limiting your experience in effectively teaching preventive healthcare, what alternative community service work would you propose to perform? Please answer in 200 words or less. Please use the space below to comment in 200 words or less.


    I don't think I would have a problem doing the school service project...so am I still suppose to propose a service project anyway? That's what I'm confused about.

    I kind of did both in my essay last year. I was an athlete while working on my undergrad. I also spent summers working for CVS, where we spend half our time arguing with customers that want their Lortab filled 10 days too soon and calling in the police to arrest people for phony scripts.

    I wrote that as a college athlete, I understand the ramifications of a healthy lifestyle and support the UACP community service project. I also wrote about another community service project, working withe the statewide prescription monitoring program (which just went into effect earlier this year), since the area is overflowing with prescription drug abuse.

    I guess it worked for me, I got in. Good luck with the essay though. That app took me forever!! :sleep:

    Thanks for your helpful response. I only have 4 more short answer questions left. Geez, I am glad I am starting all this stuff well before the deadline.
