The ABC high school Program offers a summer internship in health disparities research for high school students in the Inland Empire, Sourthern California.
Students will participate in a full-time, eight-week summer program featuring:
· Hands-on biomedical research experience under the supervision of an expert scientist.
· Seminars on health disparities (examining the disproportionate burden of diseases such as diabetes, stroke, cancer, and HIV/AIDS among minority and medically underserved populations).
· Recreational activities that give students a chance to enjoy time off with program peers and mentors
A key objective of the ABC internship program is to increase diversity in the biomedical workforce in our local community and nationwide. To achieve this goal, we encourage student applications from from disadvantaged backgrounds, and students who belong to groups that are nationally underrepresented in the STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) disciplines.
Loma Linda University's high school summer research program is commited to exposing talented students to the health professions and giving them a chance to be involved firsthand. Today, about 80% of past ABC program students are currently completing their undergraduate degree in a scientific discipline, almost four times the rate shown for underrepresented miniroty students nationwide.

In the coming weeks, you will be asked to give your thoughts on this question: “What would most help all students in RUSD to be successful?” We need to hear from you as our district begins putting together its Local Control and Accountability Plan. Districts throughout California are crafting these plans, which signal a significant change from the state-controlled “one size fits all” educational plans of the past to a more locally-minded plan that specifically addresses the needs of our students here in Riverside. Make sure to have your voice heard! Come of one of the community meetings, included one right here at our school. You can find a full list of meeting dates and times at: www.successforstudents.org. You also can share your ideas at this website.
