Simon’s 2A and 2P class students participated in health workshops to learn how to describe symptoms of an illness in English and how to read and understand medicine labels. The workshops were provided by our old partner agency, Ryan Health which has always been giving interesting workshops including the nutrition workshops that took place for our 1B, 1C, 2A, and 2P classes 2 weeks ago. We hope that we can have in-person workshops again with their interesting actual materials in the future.
