The Reach Out to Youth program targets students (ages 7-11) who aspire towards careers in medicine and parents interested in maximizing their child’s educational potential. Parents and children will each participate in a day of separate workshops. Parent workshops will focus on obesity, healthy lifestyles, and “Preparing Your Child forMedicalSchool”. Students will participate in interactive small group sessions in anatomy, physiology, and clinical medicine. These workshops are designed to motivate students and lead them to careers in the medical profession, as well as educate them on the science behind healthy living and eating. Parents are not required to attend, however it is strongly encouraged.
