Project SEARCH Academy 2011
The Northwest Area Health Education Center (AHEC) of Wake Forest University School of Medicine is sponsoring Project SEARCH Academy 2011. This summer program is a six day enrichment program for rising 8th grade students designed to recruit, educate, prepare and enhance the academic qualifications of middle school students. The program includes a one week in-residence component on the Wake Forest University Reynolda Campus which includes interactive educational activities and experiences that will be presented in daily case sessions in the Biology Department at Wake Forest. Students will extend the newly acquired knowledge via afternoon visits to laboratories at the Wake Forest University School of Medicine. The program also includes guided career facilitation sessions and a post mentorship experience. The mentorship involves the student shadowing a health care professional in their community. Project SEARCH 2011 will be held July 24-30, 2011.
