Reflections About the Importance of Education Interdisciplinary Practice in Health at Schools of Poor Communities

Article of Research Journal of Pharmacology and Pharmacy Reflections About the Importance of Education Interdisciplinary Practice in Health at Schools of Poor Communities MELO, L.P.S1; MELO, A.P1; FERREIRA, J.S; FREITAS, R.M1; FRAGA, S.N1. Federal University of Pernambuco1 In 1940, the health education strategies were authoritarian, technicist, biologicist, verticalized, informative and the individual was responsible for his health.

The school is a teaching-learning space, coexistence and growth, important in the children’s life stages. Therefore, it is an ideal place to practice health education. This study aims to think about extension actions developed in schools from a country city of Pernambuco State. The actions, developed by university students, are linked to an extension project from CAV/UFPE, that addresses, in a ludic way (play and educational dynamics), hygiene, food, environment and physical education issues, at the school environment.
