Turning sympathy to empathy

It was such a success that Capital has brought the concept back for a second year with a new issue: nutrition in America.

Through a range of experiences, students who were selected for the experiment will be challenged to deepen their understanding of the issue and walk a mile in someone else’s shoes for the next several months.

Guided by three community partners, students will be immersed in unfamiliar and unexpected environments where they will learn firsthand about nutrition and the choice people make in the foods they eat. To help, the school is partnering with Columbus City Schools, Columbus Public Health and Whole Foods Market.
