Canisius is providing high school students in pre-health programs the opportunity to engage in learning about career pathways in healthcare.
The Emerging Health Scholars Program provides mentoring, activities and laboratory experiments conducted virtually with Canisius undergraduate students.
Allyson Backstrom, PhD, director of the Pre-Med Center at Canisius College and Brittany Mitchell, LMSW, program manager at Erie Niagara AHEC administer the program. The first cohort of 17 students from Math, Science, & Technology Prep School (MST) and Research Laboratory High School for Bioinformatics & Life Sciences completed their session in January.
On Saturday, April 24 and Sunday, April 25, the campus community is invited to join teams from Canisius in helping to clean up our community. Bring your friends and family! For specific times, meeting points and more information, register for Virtual Service Week by using the QR code on the attached flyer or Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Saturday locations include the Erie Basin Marina, Tifft Farm, Hoyt Lake in Delaware Park, the Lodge at Delaware Park and the Foundry on Northamption Street. There will also be an opportunity to serve at the Canisius East-West Garden on Lafayette Avenue, including painting trash barrels for Buffalo United Front and preparing for spring planting.
On Sunday, join us at People’s Park on Main Street or meet at Christ the King Chapel for a campus and neighborhood clean up.
