Medical Center Library provides training to high school students interested in health careers

Susan Foster-Harper
Emerging Technologies Librarian Susan Foster-Harper in the Medical Center Library recently provided a training session on the use of databases in the health sciences for a group of 26 high school students.  The students were on campus for the Health Researchers Youth Academy (HRYA) sponsored by the Area Health Education Center (AHEC).

HRYA, a two-week program held at UK, exposes high school students to some of UK's research-related activities including working with graduate students and attending faculty lectures. During their time here, the students develop poster presentations on selected topics. Susan assisted them with literature review strategies related to various databases available for their research projects.
