Heart smart mobstyle resources
Heart smart mobstyle has been developed for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students. It has been designed for use at school in the Personal Development, Health and Physical Education subjects and Science and Technology subjects.
The resource includes heart health, healthy nutrition, physical activity and quitting smoking. There is a Teacher’s notes book as well as a Student activity book.
This is the story of a young man, Jermaine King, who lost his life at 18 to cardiomyopathy. His family are keen to share his story with others to raise awareness that heart health checks are just as important for young aboriginal men and women as those who are older.
