      Yes I do. I think it’s very important for young people to have some medical knowledge.

      It would be useful for things like first aid and it would help youngsters be aware of symptoms that affect themselves or their friends. Knowledge is power as they say.

      That said, sometimes with medicine it can be quite scary to know all the things that can go wrong with your body but not have the expertise like a doctor has to know how likely it is to actually happen. We need a happy medium of knowledge but not scaring people to death!!
