October’s session of the Ladder was led by the fantastic folks from the University of Minnesota Dental School!
Our young medical scholars had the opportunity not only to learn about dentistry but also to have hands-on experience in aspects of dental practice. Above, scholars learn how to make dental impressions; below, one of our scholars gets a feel for using a dental scaler on patient model.
Here, one of our senior dental scholars teaches the day’s youngest scholar about dental physiology:
Tell the young scholars in your life, family, school, class and neighborhood about The Ladder – where they can not only develop goals for the future, but be actively supported and challenged to pursue those goals by mentors and resources from the University of Minnesota Academic Health Sciences schools & colleges, the North Memorial Family Medicine Residency Program, and Broadway Family Medicine. In addition, young scholars will be learning along side and supported by peers from their own communities and neighborhoods in North Minneapolis.
The next meeting of the Ladder is Saturday, November 8th (always the second Saturday of the month) at 12:30pm and open to scholars, parents and supporters agers 9 and older. There’s always learning AND fun – plus free lunch! The Ladder meets at the UROC building (2001 Plymouth Ave N) in North Minneapolis.
