Amanda Hornbach is a medical student at the Indiana University School of Medicine’s West Lafayette (IUSM–WL) campus. During the summer between her first and second years of medical school, Hornbach developed a one-time, interactive educational curriculum for children participating in a local summer-long lunch and educational series through the Food Finders Food Bank. This project was completed as part of the IUSM–West Lafayette Primary Care Scholars summer program. This article outlines her experiences, her development of session material, and what she learned as a result of completing the program. Development of this curriculum dovetails her interests in pediatrics and health education, as well as her plans to specialize in a pediatric field.
