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!
