These advisors/role models will encourage students to complete advanced studies and provide concrete advice and information on available resources, professional opportunities, and career paths in biomedical science and other science-related fields. The second objective is to enable student participants to meet, inspire, and network with one another. Student participants should be seriously interested in or currently studying in biomedical, biotechnology, and science-related fields, such as medicine, chemistry, physics, biology, nursing, dentistry, pharmacy, biomedical engineering, biotechnology, physical therapy, public health, allied health, or environmental science.
