Local students attend medicine program

GRAND FORKS, ND — Sydney Haworth of Arlee, and Maria Charlo of Pablo recently attended the Indians Into Medicine (INMED) Summer Institute program at the University of North Dakota, Grand Forks.

78 American Indian junior high and high school students representing 24 tribes from across the United States attended the six-week program held from June 5 ñ July 15. The academic enrichment program offered instruction in math, physics, biology, chemistry, health and communication/study skills to help American Indian students develop solid academic foundations in subject areas vital to success in the health sciences. Cultural, social and outdoor recreational activities for 2011 included visits to White Earth, MN; Agassiz Environmental Learning Center, Fertile, MN; Old Treaty Crossing, Valley Fair in Minneapolis, MN; Minnesota Zoo and the Science Museum of Minnesota, St. Paul, MN; and Sealife Minnesota in Shakopee, MN.

INMED, as part of the Quentin N. Burdick Indian Health Programs, also provides a full range of academic-year support programs for over 100 students preparing for degrees in medicine, nursing, clinical psychology and related health professions. INMED has been in operation for over 30 years and continues to expand its programs and linkages to other Indian colleges and technical institutions in the region.
