DC3 Sophomores to Attend New England Science Symposium
Four sophomores from DC3 will attend the New England Science Symposium as a part of their involvement in Kansas Bridges to the Future. Director Elizabeth Wallace, Professor of Chemistry at Dodge City Community College directs the grant program which is funded by the National Institutes of Health and administered by Kansas State University.
Kansas Bridges to the Future offers educational and networking opportunities to students who belong to ethnic/racial minority groups that are underrepresented in the biomedical field. Qualifying students begin their involvement in Kansas Bridges to the Future at the community college level and then transfer to Kansas State University, receiving tuition scholarships at both institutions.
The DC3 sophomores and Kansas Bridges to the Future members who will be attending the New England Science Symposium are Manuel Armando Jimenez, Abel Garcia Cabello, Melitza Ramirez, and Michelle Coca Mora. Other members of the Kansas Bridges to the Future program are DC3 freshmen Bryant Avila, Yesenia Herrera, Laura Soto, Elena Carlos, Ivan Chavez, and Vanessa Hernandez.
The New England Science Symposium will be held on March 25th, 2017 at the Joseph B. Martin Conference Center at Harvard Medical School in Boston, MA. The event will give the students, as well as postdocs; medical, dental, and graduate students; post-baccalaureates; and other university and community college students a platform to present, orally or with posters, their research activities and findings. They will also be able to network with professionals within their field of study as well as participate in discussions and exchange ideas regarding career development in the sciences.
