Education and Role Modeling for Young Minorities in Science

As APS K-12 Minority Outreach Fellows, the women will visit K-12 classrooms to talk about their career paths and to serve as role models for other minority students. In addition the Fellows will:

  • Conduct outreach activities for high school teachers and students at the APS annual meeting, held as part of the Experimental Biology (EB) 2008 (and EB09) conference.

  • Serve as a Physiologist-in-Residence at the APS Science Teaching Forum, a week of hands-on science training for middle school and high school teachers.

  • Visit K-12 minority student classrooms in their home towns during the 2008-2009 school year to deliver career presentations and lead hands-on physiology activities. They will also encourage pre-college minority students who are underrepresented in science African Americans, Native Americans, Hispanics and Pacific Islanders to think about becoming biomedical researchers.

  • Represent the APS at the national Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS), a national conference designed to facilitate increased minority involvement in biomedical and behavioral science careers. The Fellows will present APS awards to undergraduate students for best oral and poster presentations in the physiological sciences during the conference.

  • Represent the APS at the Society for Advancement of Chicanos and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS) national conference, designed to engage participants from all scientific fields in discourse on a specific science-focused theme, and

  • Reach out to a local school near their institution to participate in PhUn (Physiology Understanding) Week (program details at http://www.phunweek.org) in the fall.

The fellowship covers conference registration fees a
