This Is How We "Role"

Tuesday, March 12, 2024 2pm to 4pm

Interested in helping with an amazing program? Join us for the How We Role afterschool program at Belmont Community Elementary School in Worcester.

The How We Role program is supported by the Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) program of the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and awarded to Purdue University.  Cummings has been a participating partner for the last several years.  About 20 other veterinary schools across the country also participate.

Cummings School's outreach program happens for 8 weeks on Tuesday afternoons from 2 PM to 4 PM,  January 23 - March 19. at Belmont Community Elementary School in Worcester. The school is located just down the street from Tufts at Tech at Worcester Technical High School.  

Faculty, staff, and students deliver curricular units developed by Purdue University's How We Role program. Units include introductions to different careers in veterinary medicine like working with dairy cows, exotics, small animals or horses and introductions to common disease states like asthma and diabetes.

If any one is interested in volunteering please contact Cyndie Webster, program coordinator.
