There is a valuable academic opportunity for students: the Lebanon Valley College Health and Biomedical Sciences Summer Program, which will be held online from July 26-28, 2021.
The Health and Biomedical Sciences Summer Program will be held via Zoom from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. and 2-4 p.m. ET each day and costs $175. We are happy to welcome rising High School freshmen-seniors.
The goal of the Health and Biomedical Sciences Summer Program is to provide a window into the scientific basis of human health. Our online Health and Biomedical Sciences Summer program will include live lectures from LVC faculty, visiting guest speakers, online laboratory exercises and other interactive activities. While we cannot duplicate the in-person experience of our traditional summer camp, our faculty are committed to providing students with an engaging and valuable experience!
Students will be introduced to the fundamentals of immunology, molecular biology, pharmacology, physiology and neuroscience. In addition, students will interact with practicing professionals in fields such as medicine, physical therapy, toxicology, and biomedical laboratory research. The Health and Biomedical Sciences Program will provide a fun, challenging and engaging college environment in which students will develop a deeper understanding of what it means to be a biomedical scientist and health professional.
For more information, or if you or your students have questions about the camp, you can visit the Health and Biomedical Sciences website (http://www.lvc.edu/academics/summer-community-programming/health-biomedical-sciences-camp/) or contact Dr. Courtney Lappas at email@example.com.
