September 2017 … A newly posted Healthy NewsWorks video explains the function of bones in the body and gives examples of how people can help strengthen them.

Student reporters for the La Salle Academy Healthy News used their research, reporting, and writing skills to develop the 4-minute video during the 2016-17 school year. Watch the video here.

After first writing about the topic in their school health newspaper, the student reporters wrote a video script, rehearsed it, and as a class, created the video filled with facts about building strong bones.

The video was produced by Community College of Philadelphia students Sheldon Davids and Clayton Cole. Denise Foley, a Healthy NewsWorks adjunct teacher, oversaw the project.

The Healthy News will mark its sixth year as part of the Healthy NewsWorks program during the 2017-18 school year.

Healthy NewsWorks thanks Jon Spielberg, an assistant professor at Community College of Philadelphia, for his assistance with the video project.
