The Center for Forensic Science Research and Education is now partnering with the Karabots Junior Fellows Program at the College of Physicians of Philadelphia. Center Director Kimberlee Moran has previously worked with the program to provide training in crime scene investigation, fingerprinting, and environmental forensics to their students. The Center will provide unique forensic content, in the form of lectures and hands-on forensic activities, to the Karabots Junior Fellows Program.
The Karabots Junior Fellows Program aims to use the resources of The College of Physicians of Philadelphia to provide practical assistance, mentoring, and academic and social support to a select group of Philadelphia high school students from communities under-represented in current healthcare professions. This three-year program is designed to facilitate their continuation into post-secondary education required for a career in healthcare. The Karabots Junior Fellows Program was officially launched on June 1, 2009 when Nick and Athena Karabots of The Karabots Foundation generously donated the first year’s funding for the program.
