On Nov 12th: Neurology and The Ladder Program’s 5th Birthday!

On November 12th at 12:30 pm, we will explore the clinical field of Neurology ! The average human brain has approximately 100 billion neurons, and there are as many as 10,000 different types of neurons. Together, neurons play an important role in nearly every system of our body. Bring your brain to participate in hands on activities centered in learning about how it works, how problems are detected, and treated. Also, please bring whomever you feel has an interest in medicine, health care, or a general curiosity about the human body!

We are especially excited to see you this month at the UROC Building as we are celebrating the 5-year anniversary of The Ladder program! If this will be the first session you attend, The Ladder is a structured environment of service learning and leadership development. It is a cascading mentorship program with members from fourth grade all the way through practicing physicians and other healthcare providers.  Our mission is “Lift as you Climb, Build as you grow.” 


Join us at the next session of the Ladder, Saturday November 12th at 12:30pm at the UROC building in North Minneapolis (2001 Plymouth Ave N, Minneapolis), to learn about diabetes causes and prevention. 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!

The UROC building is reachable by Metro Transit bus routes 19, 32 & 7.

Have a bulletin board or wall-space for info-posting? Print this off and post! Curious about what the Ladder is all about? See for yourself!

The Ladder is a Society of Medical Scholars ages 9 to 99. Meetings are every second Saturday of the month.
