A medical school summer camp helps minority boys erase the “belief gap”
During the regular school year, Ty Mathis is a math and science teacher in the Alamance-Burlington School System. This summer, he’s teaching mostly middle school African-American boys at a Bridge to Medical School Camp in Graham. The camp is designed to encourage boys of color to consider medical school.
“Where is my illuminator? That’s our light source. Where’s my stage and then stage clip?” says Mathis on a recent afternoon while standing in the front of a sciene lab at Alamance Community College. “Good job.”
