"I honour, and shall always honour, every one who advances the noble science of physiology." — Charles Darwin
Improve your teaching skills at all levels?
Reach out to the next generation of minority scientists?
Participate in outreach activities to K-12 students and teachers?
Become more comfortable talking about physiology careers?
If so, consider applying to be an APS Minority Outreach Fellow. This program seeks to foster communication between minority graduate and postdoctoral students and middle/high school minority life sciences students. Program activities include year-long outreach fellowships for senior graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to visit K-12 classrooms, help conduct teacher professional development workshops, and attend scientific meetings. The fellowship was supported by a grant from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Disorders (NIDDK) at the National Institutes of Health (Grant #R13 DK39306) through 2012. The program is now supported by the American Physiological Society.
The APS Minority Outreach Fellows make a one-year commitment to the program to:
Registration and travel costs for both Experimental Biology meetings and the ABRCMS or SACNAS meeting; travel costs, materials, and supplies for two visits to minority student classrooms.
Sign up for the Minority e-newsletter to receive timely announcements of awards, opportunities, and events of interest to trainees.
This is a form to discuss and finalize your plans for your classroom visit.
The NRMN is a consortium created to provide networking and mentoring experiences in support of training and professional development of individuals underrepresented in biomedical research careers.
Physiology Understanding (PhUn) Week is the APS’ member-based annual outreach program to K-12 school classrooms each November.
