Marshall University hosted the annual Health Science and Technology Academy Summer Institute this week with a camp titled Fun with Science. It’s a summer program that begins a journey toward college for high school students.
The Health Science and Technology Academy is a collaboration between Marshall and West Virginia University. The statewide initiative was created to inspire first-generation, rural and African American youth to attend college and offset the disparity of those populations in the areas of science and health care. Students took part in dissection activities and got to diagnose mock patients after some instruction.
