Junior Biomedical Scholars (JBS)

Mission
The mission of Junior Biomedical Scholars, JBS, is to provide a rigorous, high quality science enrichment, public health exposure, talent development and college readiness program targeting disadvantaged youth in underserved areas in an effort to diversify the fields of science, medicine, and public health. JBS unites graduate and undergraduate student mentors across various disciplines with high school students to carry out their own health-related research projects, compete in local, national and international fairs, and graduate from four-year academic institutions with the goal of pursuing an advanced degree.

Goals
We believe youth are powerful and age is NOT a limitation to making an impact on your world. As we tap into a young scholars' potential, we keep the following goals in mind:
(1) Expose scholars to various disciplines within the fields of science and public health to present possible career paths (2) Educate scholars using innovative, hands-on curricula to assist in understanding the biomedical basis of disease and social determinants of health and their impact on society
(3) Develop scholars to a level of proficiency to teach their communities and provide novel solutions to combat domestic and global health disparities
(4) Equip scholars with the skills needed to mature into biomedical researchers and public health practitioners in order to diversify the fields of science, medicine, and public health
(5) Elevate the leadership skills, character, confidence, and ability of our scholars to achieve personal and professional goals
