Upward Bound Students Visit the Clinical Physiology Lab
Dr. Hargens welcomed 33 students and volunteers from the Upward Bound Math and Science Program on Tuesday.
This program follows first generation college bound students through their 4 years of high school and provides
opportunities for them to succeed academically. Thanks to Brinda
Rana for organizing the visit, and to the many people who made the
event a success! The students learned about how Dr. Hargens was
first introduced to space physiology and were given a hands on
experience with some of the lab equipment such as the inversion
table, a blood pressure monitor and ultrasound. They also got a tour
of the clinic and a few were able to experience artificial gravity in
the lower body negative pressure chamber.
Presentations were given by Pravleen Bains, Neeki Ashari and Jessie Fischman describing their experiences in
college and the choices they made to get there.
Thanks again to everyone who participated! It was a real treat!
