Sandy Lake First Nation Nutrition and Diabetes
Science Summer Camp
(Partnered with Sandy Lake Diabetes Prevention Program)
The summer camp is operated by Let’s Talk Science, an educational organization that strives to improve science literacy through leadership and educational programs. We empower youth to use science to develop critical skills, knowledge, and attitudes needed to benefit themselves and the scientific community. In August 2011, five (5) graduate student Let’s Talk Science volunteers from the Department of Nutritional Sciences travelled to Sandy Lake, a fly-in community 600 km northwest of Thunder Bay.
