Participating programs

Programs participating in the studio audience (Tate-Turner-Kuralt building)

  Biostatistics Summer Undergraduate Research and Education (BSURE) Program [BSURE]
      Lloyd J. Edwards, Ph.D., Director

  Emerging Leaders in Public Health [ELPH]
      Monecia R. Thomas, M.H.A., Director

"The Emerging Leaders in Public Health Program is designed to prepare the next generation of public health leaders, by identifying and training public health practitioners with the talent to serve in significant leadership capacities. Participants from across the country learn on-line and in North Carolina about the ’hot topics’ facing public health professionals and how to lead their organizations through crisis situations. The Annual Summer Public Health Research Videoconference on Minority Health provides ELPH scholars with current research findings from prominent professionals in relevant fields. Our participants look forward to this event each year."

  North Carolina Health Careers Access Program [NC-HCAP]
      Patrena N. Benton, M.S., Director

"Each summer NC-HCAP sponsors its Science Enrichment Preparation (SEP) Program on UNC’s campus. SEP is an eight-week, academic enrichment program for minority and disadvantaged students seeking to increase their preparedness for entry into graduate/health professional programs. Participating in the public health Videoconference is a major complement to the curriculum and enrichment activities that these scholars will engage in throughout their summer experience."

  National Science Foundation Alliance for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (NSF AGEP) at UNC [AGEP]
      Valerie S. Ashby, Ph.D., Director

"As director of the National Science Foundation Alliance for Graduate Education and Professoriate (NSF AGEP) at UNC, I am especially pleased that our students will be a part of this event. The NSF AGEP program will have minority undergraduates from across the country visiting UNC for a summer research experience. These students are specifically interested in graduate research and careers in academia. Their participation in this event on June 3rd will be one of the highlights of their summer experience and will certainly spark their research interests in public health. Again, we commend you and offer our full support."

  Shaw - UNC Undergraduate Program for Prostate cancer Research and Training [SUUPPRT]
