The latest episode of the Health Sciences Update – airing on Comcast channel 17 in the greater Spokane area – features discussions on two types of research.

The Spokane STEMposium was on campus last week, featuring more than 200 area middle and high school students giving presentations on STEM-related projects.
The programs on our health sciences campus reach across the state, so these students are in a good place as they work toward their career goals.
The Spokane STEMposium came to campus again this year, giving more than 200 local middle and high school students the chance to present STEM projects in a conference setting.
We enjoy hosting this event since our academic programs fall well within the STEM umbrella. STEM, of course, stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.
In our pursuit of a medical school headquartered in Spokane, we’ve talked about how the community-based model will send third- and fourth-year WSU medical students to locations across the state. It is a model that will introduce medical students to communities that are in need of physicians.
This won’t be entirely new territory for us, as some of our other health sciences programs already reach across Washington, offering students in other communities the chance to study close to home.
Comcast Cable Channel 17 is now featuring video programs produced at WSU Spokane as part of its daily offerings.
