Brief statement about how the McNair Scholars Program helped you get where you are today.
I am Blessed to have the McNair Scholars Program to prepare for Graduate School and beyond. Dr. Watson, Dr. Schmit, Jen Barron, and the mentors, have offered a listening ear and shoulder, or a swift kick when I needed one.
Any advice for new McNair Scholars?
Consider your goals after the Baccalaureate Program and how McNair can help.
I am interested in reducing health disparities affecting children in marginalized communities, in hopes these efforts will improve their academic outcomes, and health behaviors as adults.
