NIAMS Adopted School Program

The goal of the NIAMS Adopt-a-School Program is to encourage young students to pursue a career in the biomedical sciences. This is a very important part of the mission of the NIAMS. Administered through the NIAMS Career Development and Outreach Branch, this program provides an opportunity for the school and the NIAMS to enter into a cooperative relationship to assist students, teachers, and school administrators in developing a better appreciation of science and scientific research careers. We have partnered with three schools to date. They are: (1) Woodrow Wilson Senior High School’s SciMaTech Academy, Washington, DC; (2) Wheaton High School’s Bioscience Academy, Wheaton, MD, and (3) the Schools for Educational Evolution and Development (SEED), Washington, DC.
