Community Outreach Initiative (COI)
Several times a year the Center for Scientific Communication and Outreach organizes outreach opportunities for the biomedical graduate students to engage in science communication with the public. The Community Outreach Initiative has partnered with the College of Physicians of Philadelphia Karabots Junior Fellowship program to promote STEM careers among underserved Philadelphia resident high school students. The students are required to the first in their immediate family to graduate college or a university.
Drexel Microbiology and Immunology students are participating in a three part outreach initiative with students enrolled in the Mütter Museum of The College of Physicians of Philadelphia Karabots program. The program will educate on the many facets of a pandemic response and how communication between the different branches is crucial to success. The students will conclude by drafting policies that will work to improve future pandemic responses. The students will also meet with Dr. Robert Jordan. Dr. Jordan is an adjunct member of the Department of Microbiology and Immunology and was the lead investigator for the current COVID-19 treatment Remdesivir.
Mentors: Mary Ann Comunale (DUCOM) and Kevin Impellizeri (CPP)
Student Participants: Jennifer Connors, Elijah Davis, Rachael Ehrlich, Mohamed Hager, Dr. Ogan Kumova, Teresa LuPone and Kayla Socarras
