Medical Center Librarian Mary Congleton worked with high school students from across Kentucky during UK's Health Researcher’s Youth Academy. Hosted by the UK Area Health Education Center, the two-week residential summer camp introduces the students to the college experience, and provides an opportunity to learn about careers in health care research. The students attend orientations and lectures, tour facilities, and interact with researches in health-related disciplines.
In addition, the students conduct research and develop a poster presentation. Mary provided the group of 27 students a session on conducting research using UK Libraries information resources. And, she demonstrated various databases, including PubMed and MedlinePlus.
