DINNER WITH HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS EXPOSES JONES HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS TO CAREERS IN MEDICINE AND SCIENCE

WHAT:

Mentoring in Medicine and Jones High School in Orlando, Florida are hosting the “Dinner with Healthcare Professionals” in the Jones High School cafeteria on Thursday, November 3 at 6pm. This event seeks the support of healthcare professionals in order to help ignite, cultivate, and prepare students to pursue a medical career.

WHY:

The mission of Mentoring in Medicine, Inc. is to diversify the workforce by exposing underrepresented students to careers in health care. There is a critical shortage of minority physicians and other healthcare professionals. According to the American Association of Medical Colleges, while racial and ethnic minorities make up approximately 25 percent of the U.S. population, they make up only six percent of practicing physicians and only 12 percent of U.S. medical school graduates. Dr. Lynne Holden, co- founder of Mentoring in Medicine states “Students need to be exposed early to the wonderful opportunities provided by a biomedical career.  Mentoring in Medicine hopes to show students the joy of learning science by building a strong academic foundation while allowing children to have fun. Our event gives students the opportunity to engage and interact with healthcare professionals outside of the classroom and hospital.”

WHEN:       

Thursday, November 3

6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

WHERE:

Jones High School

Cafeteria

801 Rio Grande Avenue

Orlando, Florida 32805

RSVP: https://mimjonesdinner.eventbrite.com

WHO:

The Dinner with Healthcare Professionals is presented in partnership with Jones High School and Mentoring in Medicine.
