Our goal is to help you build solid scientific communication and critical analytical skills while exposing you to current issues in cardiovascular health equity and advocacy. Our programs provide you with unique networking opportunities that support the development of near-peer mentoring and career exploration.
By the end of the program, you will have built, produced, and presented a digital resource that will allow others to explore an area of cardiovascular interest of your choosing. Together, we will support a culture of discovery and engagement that will shape tomorrow’s leaders in cardiovascular research, care, and advocacy.
To see that we have in store for you next week see the Week One Schedule here!
