Training Highlights from the Jackson Heart Study
The Jackson Heart Study prepares students from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, especially African Americans, to pursue biomedical careers. Students willing to participate in the study may do so through the SLAM (Science, Language Arts, and Mathematics) program at the high school level or as JHS Scholars at the undergraduate or postgraduate level. College undergraduate- and graduate-level trainees can benefit from additional research funds known as diversity supplements, which enable principal investigators who hold NHLBI grants or contracts to mentor the trainees on a variety of projects.
See how past and current trainees have benefited from JHS career training and education.
