Presentations in Medicine for High School Students

Introduction

The National Library of Medicine has partnered with the Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science to develop a program of topics of interest to high school students considering careers in the health sciences. Presentations were made to students at the King Drew Medical Magnet High School, an affiliate of the university, and one of two magnet high schools in the U.S. devoted to preparing minority high school students for health careers. Some presentations were local, while others were by videoconference from NLM. Selected presentations from the 2004-2010 academic years have been archived, along with the material presented. The program was expanded in the 2007-2008 academic year to include Kotzebue High School in Kotzebue, Alaska and in the 2009-2010 academic year to include Farrington High School in Honolulu, Hawaii.
