Our mission is to foster a deep understanding and appreciation for science and medicine amongst high school students in Southwest Virginia. Through our after-school enrichment program, which is organized by dedicated medical students, we aim to ignite curiosity and passion for various medical subjects, ranging from cardiology to neurology.  Inspired by an educational outreach program at Mt. Sinai, we wish to offer interactive lectures and hands-on activities to immerse young minds in the intricate worlds of anatomy, physiology, and pathology. Furthermore, we actively engage medical students in the development and refinement of our curriculum, thus honing their communication skills, nurturing their teaching abilities, and providing them with opportunities to give back to the community.
