Part 22: Biomedical Enrichment Programs for Disadvantaged Secondary Students. Hearing before the Subcommittee on Elementary, Secondary, and Vocational Education of the Committee on Education and Labor, House of Representatives, Ninety-Fifth Congress, Second Session on H.R. 10736.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Education and Labor.
This document records the text of bill H.R. 10736 and presents statements, testimony, and suggestions for modification made by various individuals. The bill provides for the establishment of projects to educate, motivate, and encourage economically disadvantaged secondary school students to pursue training at the undergraduate and graduate levels in the biomedical sciences. Its implementation would potentially accomplish the following goals: (1) to educate and train a large number of health professionals who would be likely to practice in medically underserved areas; (2) to make safer living and working environments and good nutrition available to those usually destined to a life of poverty; and (3) to motivate individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds to adopt safer/healthier personal behavior patterns.
