Next Session at The Ladder: Infectious Diseases! April 8th

It’s that wonderful time of the month again folks! The next session at The Ladder is on April 8th, at 12:30 pm in UROC. Get ready to soak up some facts about disease causing teeny-tiny critters like bacteria, viruses and fungi and how they are spread. Some of these little critters help us digest our foods and help us make foods like bread and yogurt. Unfortunately, others can make us really, really sick! Come prepared to learn hands-on about how science and medicine has helped us treat and prevent many of these diseases. Feel free to bring family and friends!

Next Session at The Ladder: Eyes and Ears! March 11th!

Our next session at The Ladder will focus on organs that help us accomplish everything from learning how to play music, to appreciating a beautiful sunset. If you don’t know what a otoscope or ophthalmoscope does, you will after this session! In fact, you will learn how to use them, as well as explore some of the amazing things they can tell you about yourself. We hope to have your eyes and ears Saturday, March 11th at 12:30 pm at UROC to learn, grow, and climb at The Ladder!

Next Session at The Ladder: Sports Medicine! January 14th!

Welcome back medical scholars! Our 2017 kick-off session is Sports Medicine and will be held at UROC on January 14th at 12:30pm. We hope you’re ready for another year of fun-soaked learning and growing together. 

Whether it’s basketball, swimming, the Gophers, or your school’s football team, sports can often be plagued by injuries. Many of you unfortunately know someone who has experienced a sports related injury or have had one yourself. Fortunately for us, there’s an entire field in medicine dedicated towards recognizing and treating ailments related to sports.

Join us at The Ladder to interact with providers that specialize in sports medicine and to explore this incredible field in health care through hands-on educational activities. 

The next session of the Ladder is on Saturday January 14th at 12:30pm at the UROC building in North Minneapolis (2001 Plymouth Ave N, Minneapolis.  Lunch will be provided, as well as hands-on activities and mentorship on next-steps for scholars of all ages interested in pursuing health care careers!
