School Curriculum

The Smart Human School CurriculumDr. Cohen has been educating young people on the health effects of everyday chemicals for many years, through local in-school lectures, community lectures or from miles away via “Skype”.  The 7th and 8th graders at Fredericksburg Academy in Virginia welcomed Dr. Cohen to their morning assembly with a 45 minute discussion about personal care products and make-up.  Dr. Cohen set up a pilot project with Princeton High School and Freehold High School to evaluate the need and desire by students to integrate environmental health information into their curriculum. The results were overwhelming!  The Smart Human has begun the process of fundraising to bring this information into the current biology and human health courses in New Jersey’s public schools. Let our team create environmental health curriculum that’s appropriate for your learning institution!
