The purpose of this program is to stimulate the interest in health and science among Native American youth.
In an effort to create awareness of Native Americans presently in health and science fields and to encourage students to explore these professions, the SEPA program staff wants your help in nominating Native American professionals who would be good role models for young Native American students.
Role Model Posters
The role model poster series feature Native Americans from across the country who work in a science or health science field. Designed with the idea of providing positive and inspiring role models to Native students, these posters are great for classroom instruction, hallway displays and multicultural events as well as being a novel way of exposing students to new career possibilities. Each set features five different individuals and their careers.
