Health and Biomedical Sciences Summer Camp
, which will be held at Lebanon Valley College from July 26-31, 2020. 

The goal of the Health and Biomedical Sciences Summer Camp is to provide a window into the scientific basis of human health.  Through lectures and hands-on laboratory investigations in state-of-the-art laboratories, students will be introduced to the fundamentals of molecular biology, pharmacology, immunology, biochemistry and neuroscience.  Students will learn how laboratory science can be translated into improved human health, and they will engage in investigative experiences that will allow them to apply their laboratory skills to real life problems.  In addition, students will interact with practicing professionals in fields such as medicine, physical therapy, toxicology, nursing and biomedical laboratory research. The Health and Biomedical Sciences camp will provide a fun, challenging and engaging college environment in which students will develop a deeper understanding of what it means to be a biomedical scientist and health professional.

Christopher Newport University's Summer Humanities Institute is a two-week residential program where students who take or plan to enroll in college-level coursework while in high school (AP, IB or DE) can learn in and outside the classroom from dynamic college faculty in the disciplines of philosophy, history, literature and cultural studies.

The 2020 Summer Humanities Institute theme “Suffrage, Inclusion and Representation” commemorates the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, which guarantees and protects the right of women to vote. Through seminar-styled courses, students will explore and creatively interpret themes of humanistic democratic engagement as represented in historical and contemporary Western thought and artistic expression. Students will also examine various cultural understandings of how democratic ideals are embodied in the humanities, while also considering their own potential engagement as a student and community member.

The multidisciplinary immersion course supports the advanced courses students are taking in high school. Participants live in our residence halls, eat in the dining halls, learn in college classrooms and earn three college credits. 

Check out the program website for additional information, and encourage interested students to apply!
