  7. Students Present at New...

The second annual New Visions Medical Senior Research Symposium was held at the East Greenbush YMCA on Thursday.

Averill Park students Sam Bendett, Emma Crawley, Jenna Miller and teacher Tammie Borland attended and presented.

During the Symposium, students from a number of different schools presented on various topics, including pregnancy, fetal and neonatal development, bone and joint damage and restoration, cancer physiology, first responder history and techniques, brain injury and restoration, and the senses.

Students were tasked with finding a way to bring their topics to life with methods ranging from creating a 3D model to creating a research poster.

According to Questar III BOCES, New Visions: Medical launched in 2016 and is based at Samaritan Hospital in Troy. The one-year program for high school seniors “is designed to allow students to experience a variety of medical careers in several specialty areas, including hands-on rotations and college-level coursework.”
