Southwood High students studying medicine at LSUHSC | Health
Southwood High School students taking part in the BioStart Program can now show how much they've learned during their advanced medical studies at the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in Shreveport.
Using grant money awarded to Southwood from the National Institues of Health, the BioStart Program allows students the opportunity to enhance their interest in the fields of medical, biotechnology and life sciences. It's hoped these extra studies will eventually help grow the quality and quantity of doctors, research scientists and medical technicians.
The students recently took part in a video to help show what the BioStart Program is about. Southwood students are highlighted in the video showing off what the students have learned and how they put that knowledge to use.
The $1.25M grant comes from the Science Education Partnership Award, which is supported by the National Institues of Health. Students studying at LSUHSC are part of Southwood's Biotechnology Magnet Program.
