This past summer, four Eastern students, along with approximately 75 students from other Connecticut colleges and universities, participated in the Yale Summer Medical and Dental Education Program. The program, sponsored by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, provides an intensive six-week exposure to science, clinical medicine and career counseling for motivated college students and graduates who want to attend medical school. Biology Professor Gloria Colurso coordinated the event. Amilcah Gomes, student development specialist in the Academic Advising Center; Clifford Marrett, interim director of the Center for Internships and Career Development; and Kemesha Wilmot, coordinator of the Intercultural Center, assisted in recruiting students to learn about the program and encourage participation.
