As school begins to start back up I wanted to remind our tribal members about another opportunity avaialble for our people..
Are you a scientist or Pre-Med? SACNAS might be an organization to think about joining. Their 2011 National Conference will be in San Jose: October 27-30th.)
A new SACNAS student chapter is starting at Stanford. SACNAS (Society for Advancement of Chicanos and Native Americans in Science) is a society of scientists dedicated to fostering the success of Hispanic/Chicano and Native American scientists—from college students to professionals—in attaining advanced degrees, careers, and positions of leadership. Student chapters provide year-round mentorship and networking opportunities for SACNAS student members. Through participation in SACNAS chapters, students, postdocs, faculty, and chapter advisors gain ongoing, local support for their development as scientists and science leaders.
You do not have to be Latino or Native American to join as SACNAS is committed to supporting diversity in the sciences. ALL ETHNICITIES ARE WELCOMED! So, CONTACT Roxanne Diaz Caceres, (firstname.lastname@example.org), OR Anita Blanco, Director of Diversity, Genetics Department at Stanford Univ. School of Medicine (email@example.com or 650.723.6274) if you want to get on
board! You will then be added to our list for an invite to an informational meeting.
Check out this 10-minute video if you want to know more about SACNAS and
