EYOTA, Minn. (FOX 47) -- Dover-Eyota seniors are taking their health to another level and educating their peers and the public.
Students in the Anatomy and Physiology class created projects relating to Atherosclerosis and Type 2 Diabetes.
Many of them are hands-on. One group chose to show how blood moves slower through blocked arteries.
Six groups teamed up all competing against each other for the opportunity to present their findings at the University of Minnesota. Several classes came in and toured the room.
One group designed a survey and an app that helps people discover their risk for the diseases.
Senior Hannah Brown says, "I feel like healthy lifestyles are all about convenience. With a society that is becoming technologically based I felt like an app that you could access 24/7 on your phone was a really good idea."
The groups are also required to set up their displays and educate the public.
The app is available through both the Apple Store and Google Play. To get them search for the app rev.U. Enter the e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and use the code DZ-DLSV.
