Health meet fun experience for student PDF Print E-mail

Zak Kurkowski of Grant was one of 64 eighth-grade students from 27 schools across Nebraska who  attended UNMC’s 19th annual Health/Science Meet June 9-11, for an educational and fun experience.
The goal of the meet is to inspire students, especially those from rural communities, to pursue careers in health care. The students qualify for the meet by submitting science projects in one of nine regional science meets sponsored by the Nebraska Area Health Education Centers across the state earlier in the year.
While on campus students were exposed to the health professions, medical research and patient care. Events included hands-on science activities such as:
• Presentations about a variety of health science disciplines
• Tours of UNMC
• A team science competition.
Zak is the son of Kelvin and Judy Kurkowski.
