The start of a new semester means a great new group of volunteers and interns for our program. Our interns have a demonstrated passion and knowledge for science and serve as health science ambassadors and role models for our students!

We are welcoming three new members to the team and we are excited about how they will learn, grow and make an impact this semester.
