What is Minorities in Health Conference?

The goal of the conference is to educate about the health disparities that affect our communities and find ways to decrease these disparities by encouraging and inspiring both high school and undergraduate students to continue to strive toward higher education and ultimately careers in health.

At the conference, students who attend will have the opportunity to network and interact with a variety of health professionals and graduate students from schools such as UCSF and UC Berkeley, attend beneficial workshops, participate in public health discussions, and better equip themselves for their journey in these competitive career tracks. Students are more than welcome to explore the area after or before the conference and shadow students for their classes (with their permission) as well.

Below is more information about Minorities in Health Conference and if you are interested in attending, please make sure to let us know of your confirmation by March 6th so that we can arrange housing, transportation, and reserve a spot in the conference for you.

Conference date/ time/ location

Date: 4/7/2018

Time: 9AM-4PM

Location: UC Berkeley Campus

The conference will start promptly at 9AM and ends at 4pm on April 7th, 2018. All attendees are required to attend the whole duration of the conference and actively participate in the workshops. Breakfast and lunch will be provided throughout the day. Everything will be free of cost, including housing the night before the conference! We want your students to be able to have the opportunity to learn about different careers in healthcare without worrying about the financial cost, so we will try our best to subsidize as much as possible for those who will be coming from far away.

If you are interested in attending the conference, please fill out this Google Form by March 6th. Thank you for reading this long email and we really hope that you will consider attending the conference. Please let us know if you have any question/ comment/ concern!

Many students have been concerned that the CSU Admissions offices are telling them they have not received their official score reports.   I have a few theories about why so many students are getting this message even though they have already sent their score reports. 

  1. The new Cal State application has been riddled with problems!
  2. Many students did NOT add their College Board ID into their Cal State Apply Application and I think this is causing the problem.   

Here is a possible solution.  Email CalStateApply@liaisoncas.com the following information:

  • Cal State Apply CAS ID
  • First & Last Name
  • College Board ID - follow the link for instructions on how to find your College Board ID
  • CSU code you sent your official SAT scores (3594 is the Cal State Apply code)
  • Date you sent your scores by Collegeboard

I hope this will solve the problem.

Each year we create a By Invitation Only program as part of our Critical Issues series. We offer it completely free to ensure that the most promising change makers are exposed to the critical issues we believe will shape their generation and cost isn’t a barrier.

Explore the complicated history of race, identity, and collective action in the Unites States. In a country founded on the principle that all people are created equal, systemic barriers to opportunity persist for people of color. Focusing on the experiences of African Americans, travel south along the East Coast to the Mississippi Delta, taking a hard look at the history of slavery, segregation, and ongoing marginalization of black communities. Study civil rights at the epicenter of the movement, and learn from organizations and individuals making strides in creating equal opportunity for all.

By the end of the program, students will:

  • Understand and appreciate the varied experiences of people of color in the United States.
  • Learn about the relationship between history and contemporary challenges related to race in America.
 Examine the impact of race on civic engagement and participation, education, and the criminal justice system in the United States.
  • Recognize their own biases and values and how those relate to issues of race and equality.
  • Develop a framework for creating positive change related to race relations in their own context.

  • Academic Enrichment Programs

  • Work Experience.  

You will only have five slots per category to add activities.

 

  1. Know your Social Security #, your SAT or ACT score reports

  2. Log into Naviance and add 5-10 colleges to your "Colleges that I am Thinking About" category.   

  3. UC’s  Personal Insight Questions:  follow the link and read over the eight options.  You pick four.  Have a draft before school starts.

  4. If you are applying to any Private Colleges you will need to at least Two Teacher letters of recommendation & your Counselor will complete a Secondary School Report (SSR).  Counselors require you to fill out a “Student Profile for College Admissions”   Make a copy of this into your g-drive and type your responses in another FONT please.

  5. Net Price Calculator - every College’s Financial Aid page will have a link to a Net price Calculator.  Have your parents use this.  It can give them an idea of what each school might cost and if you might be eligible for some aid.
