Summer in South Chicago, in Haiku

These haikus are from the seven students on the Summer Service Partnership’s Team South Chicago. A medical student, social work student and undergraduate from the University of Chicago partner with four high school students from Chicago’s South Sude to learn about the social determinants of health, volunteer with community organizations, and develop a health service project. Today Team South Chicago will be sharing information on teen sexual health at the Centro Juan Diego health fair. Yesterday they posted these haikus to the SSP blog–loving it!

Sun shine, bus ride,

Tacos, burritos, large sprite

Cup filled with ice
