Two Biology student clubs (the Science Society and the Pre-Med Club) were awarded a $500 grant to conduct public outreach activities this term.

The Science Society and the Pre-Med Club have earned a competitive ASBMB Student Chapter Outreach Grant, which helps recipients increase their involvement in science outreach activities in their local community. The funds will be used during the upcoming breast cancer awareness event, “I Heart Boobies,” on October 10, 2018. The students will host a table where they will provide information to the MMC community on breast cancer awareness. Activities will include educating students, staff, and faculty on breast self-examination using a scientific breast model. The club members will also recruit participants for the annual Making Strides Breast Cancer Walk in Central Park on October 14.

Congratulations to our student club members–well done!

All are welcome to stop by our table on October 10!
