Are you a high school student interested in introducing young girls to medicine? "The Girls Empowered in the Medicine (GEMS)" Program, which is a comprehensive series of medical immersive experiences for middle school girls, needs talented and passionate high school volunteers.
There are 968,743 Physicians in the US?. Only ?34% are women (from the Kaiser Family Foundation State Health Facts). The “Girls Empowered in the Medicine (GEMS)” Program, a comprehensive series of medical immersive experiences for middle school girls, was designed with these statistics in mind. GEMS consists of a series of one-day to one week experiences in the Greater New York City Area (applications coming soon!) with the goal of bringing girls closer to a career in medicine. High School Students: ?Join the cause to bring women into medicine! See our website for details on how to volunteer for GEMS!
