We’re very excited to announce an upcoming Perry Outreach Program on Saturday, January 23 at Kaiser Permanente Hospital in San Jose, CA. The Perry Outreach Program is a free, one-day, hands-on experience for high school and college-aged women who are interested in pursuing careers in medicine and engineering. Students will hear from women leaders in these fields and try it for themselves by performing mock orthopaedic surgeries and biomechanics experiments.
We are now seeking applicants for our San Jose program. Participants should be women in grades 10 and up with an expressed interest in science, medicine and/or engineering. We would very much appreciate if you could pass this information along to any high school principals, high school science teachers or high school students you may know. Applicants should be directed to fill out our online application in advance of the Dec 22 application deadline.
Additional information can be found on our website: www.perryinitiative.org

All the best,
Manuela Restrepo, Program Coordinator
