Congratulations, Sydney!

One of our Karabots Junior Fellows, Sydney Elliott has just qualified as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA).Sydney joined our KJF program in 2009. The Karabots Junior Fellows Program aims to use the resources of The College of Physicians of Philadelphia to provide practical assistance, mentoring, and academic and social support to a select group of Philadelphia high school students from communities under-represented in current healthcare professions. This three-year program is designed to facilitate their continuation into post-secondary education required for a career in healthcare. The program is generously supported by The Karabots Foundation.

Karabots Students Meet the Poet Laureate

Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Natasha Trethewey, the current Poet Laureate of the United States, met with the Karabots Junior Fellows before her October lecture at the College. Professor Trethewey discussed the historical and personal aspects of her work, including growing up in the South as the child of an illegal interracial marriage. Students asked about her inspiration and the obstacles she's faced in her career before touring the Mutter Museum's new Civil War Medicine exhibit, Broken Bodies, Suffering Spirits.
