As an educator who advises high school students, I would like to alert you to a valuable academic opportunity that may be of interest to your students: the Health and Biomedical Sciences Summer Camp, which will be held at Lebanon Valley College (PA) from June 25-30 and July 23-28, 2017.
The goal of the Health and Biomedical Sciences Summer Camp is to provide a window into the scientific basis of human health. Through lectures and hands-on laboratory investigations in state-of-the-art laboratories, students will be introduced to the fundamentals of molecular biology, pharmacology, immunology, biochemistry and medical ethics. Students will learn how laboratory science can be translated into improved human health, and they will engage in investigative experiences that will allow them to apply their laboratory skills to real life problems. In addition, students will interact with practicing professionals in fields such as medicine, physical therapy, toxicology, genetic counseling and biomedical laboratory research. The Health and Biomedical Sciences camp will provide a fun, challenging and engaging college environment in which students will develop a deeper understanding of what it means to be a biomedical scientist and health professional.
For more information, or if you have questions about the camp, you can visit the Health and Biomedical Sciences website (http://www.lvc.edu/academics/summer-community-programming/health-biomedical-sciences-camp/) or contact Dr. Courtney Lappas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
