March 3, 2015 was Physiology Understanding (PhUn) Day in South Sioux City.
“More than 250 children, mostly American Indian students, participated in an event organized by the UNMC Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) program, an NIH-funded initiative to engage Native youth in science. The purpose of the grant is to strengthen the math and science curriculum of American Indian youths living on reservations and in urban areas in Nebraska and South Dakota. Activities were led by UNMC graduate students, faculty, and alumni. The students also took the opportunity to discuss scientific and medical careers with the middle and high school students as they learned more about physiology and health.” UNMC Today Article
