·         Summer ProgramsIt’s not too early to start looking at Summer Programs

UC Irvine Summer Surgery ProgramThe program offers two, two-week intense sessions for mature high school students who are at least 16 years old, have a minimum GPA of 3.5, and are currently enrolled in high school. Observe live surgical cases, gain hands-on experience with our state-of-the-art da Vinci robot. Learn actual surgical skills in open laparoscopic and robotic surgery through surgical skills workshops. Perform in-depth fetal pig dissection with an emphasis on the types of surgical cases the students will see in the operating room. If you are interested, go to: http://www.urology.uci.edu/education_summersurgery.shtml to apply.

·         BCHD IS OFFERING the High School Purpose Program on Wednesday, Nov. 13 at 12:26pm (PM Office Hours) in the CCC.  For students, finding purpose is important as they discover their life goals and make career choices. The Purpose Series gives students an opportunity to pause; reflect; and decide not only what they want to be but also who they want to be. Research tells us, people with purpose live longer, have higher performance, and are happier. By participating in school-based purpose activities, students have a new understanding of what their purpose is and why it matters, while also discovering their calling for this stage in their lives in order to be better prepared for the future. Please sign up on Naviance or in the CCC if you are interested in attending this session.
