It’s often hard to track students once they leave Seward County Community College. The Kansas Bridges to the Future program, however, provides an opportunity for SCCC students to be successful as they transfer to a four-year college or university. It also gives SCCC the opportunity to track the success of these students.
Two Seward County Community College graduates, Dixie Lopez (Psychology) and Charlie Dao (Biology), recently graduated with bachelor’s degrees from Kansas State University through the National Institute of Health Bridges Program. SCCC in partnership with Kansas State University participates in a grant-funded program aimed at increasing the number of under-represented minorities seeking bachelor or higher degrees in biomedical sciences. The Kansas Bridges to the Future program is based on a three-year, $640,000 research-training grant funded by the National Institutes of Health.
Individuals identified for the Bridges program receive dual admission into SCCC and K-State and participate in a one-week summer institute to build awareness of scientific investigation and opportunities after the freshman year. SCCC currently has eight NIH Bridges students at K-State.
As part of the K-State Developing Scholars Program, Lopez and Dao participated in the Seventh Annual Research Symposium. Lopez’s project was entitled ?"Possible Nonspecific Effects of Opoid Antagonists During? Acute Treatment in Male Rats." Dao’s project was "Purkinje Neuron Degeneration in Protein Kinasa C-Gamma ?Knock-out Mice Under Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment."
If you are African American, Hispanic or Latino, Native American, Vietnamese, or a member of any other ethnic/racial minority group that is underrepresented in the biomedical sciences, you may qualify for a this program in Kansas. Contact Todd Carter, chair of the SCCC Natural Science, Mathematics and Physical Education Division, 620-417-1500 or todd.carter@sccc.edu.
