Three Science Research students from Valley Stream Central High School have been accepted into the Sophie Davis School of Medicine High School Internship Program. Congratulations to Aleena Abraham, Maheen Babar and Kayla Dhanipersaud for their selection to this elite, rigorous program.

The Sophie Davis Health Professions internship involves focusing on public health in the community. Students will have a community-based internship project, giving them an opportunity to take part in developing solutions to health care problems in urban areas. Students will discuss and observe the social and economic problems of health and disease. They will work with the community, leaders, clinicians, and population health experts to learn how health professionals address these problems. They will build the foundations of biology, chemistry and physics necessary for successful future in health care careers.
