Young Doctors and Health Professionals Program (Pilot Program)
[This is 10-month STEM program for minority and underserved 5th – 8th Graders designed to enhance participants’ mathematics, science, problem-solving and writing skills while exposing them to the field of health care. Participants are given the appropriate equipment and taught how to take blood pressure, temperature, pulse pressure, and pulse rate. These readings are used in group discussions in mathematics and science investigation to teach how the body is affected by food consumption, exercise habits, and disease. Students study the (prescribed and non-prescribed) medications that are used to control these numbers. Participants also engage in hands-on activities, group discussions, meet health professionals, tour health facilities and more! The intent is that students gain an understanding of how science and math are useful tools in life. Our aim is to motivate all participants and improve their achievement in these areas and increase the number of minority students entering and completing medical school.

Financial Literacy Program
This program is open to adults and students in grades 5 through 12. Our goal is that financial literacy become a part of life for each participant. The focus is on providing support and financial understanding to all participants so that they become informed consumers. Information and skills are shared that apply specifically to their lives. Concepts include explaining how income affects choices and spending decisions, how to create budget, the relationship between education levels and income, how to develop a spending plan, and illustrate how income affects decisions to purchase and spend. Our goal is to have students in grades 10-12 attend the course with a parent or guardian.
