UNTHSC reaches out to next generation

This summer, students from around Fort Worth and across the country are visiting UNT Health Science Center to learn about the health sciences as part of several educational outreach programs. Recently, fifth-graders from Fort Worth’s Maude Logan Elementary School attended a “Mini-Med School” sponsored by the Pediatrics Club.

The Health Science Center is hosting eighth-graders from Fort Worth schools in the Texas Academy of Biomedical Sciences Prep Summer Camp. Other Fort Worth Independent School District students went to work in offices and clinics across the campus last week as part of the district’s Vital Link program. High school students from the Prairie Area Health Education Center participated in a summer camp designed to encourage students to enter health-related careers.

Undergraduate college students from across the country are conducting research in UNTHSC’s labs as part of our Summer Multicultural Advanced Research Training and McNair Scholars programs. In addition, four students from our partner institution, Morehouse University, have joined the Historically Black College or University Summer Research Internship Program as part of a Department of Defense grant for prostate cancer research.
