A skills-based health program allows teachers to adapt their content based on the current needs of their student population. In this session, participants will be guided through a ready to go unit plan that will address the influence of peers and social media on student health behaviors, while equipping students with the skills needed to combat these messages with a critical eye. Resources will cover the influence of social media on body image for both boys and girls, fad diets, vaping, and more.
