On Oct. 15, 70 undergraduate students who are part of the Society for the Advancement of Chicanos and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS) will tour the University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth as part of the Health Science Center’s sponsorship of the 2009 SACNAS conference.

The tour will feature demonstrations in the patient simulation lab, microflorescence facility and forensic genetics lab, as well as a public health outbreak simulation.

In addition, U.S. Army Major Robert Carter III, who earned his PhD in biomedical science and Master of Public Health degrees from the UNT Health Science Center, will be the keynote speaker at the larger conference on Wednesday evening, Oct. 14, at the Sheraton Hotel Dallas.
