On Saturday, March 25th, four sophomores from DC3 attended the New England Science Symposium as a part of their involvement in Kansas Bridges to the Future, an organization that offers several educational and networking opportunities to students who belong to ethnic/racial minority groups that are underrepresented in the biomedical field. The DC3 sophomores and Kansas Bridges to the Future members who attended were Melitza Ramirez and Michelle Coca Mora.
The New England Science Symposium was held at the Joseph B. Martin Conference Center at Harvard Medical School in Boston, MA. The event gave 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 were also able to network with professionals within their field of study as well as to participate in discussions and exchange ideas regarding career development in the sciences. Several awards were presented to those with outstanding presentations.
