The annual Biosciences and Health Disparities Symposium at the University of Hawaiʻi drew close to 170 different ideas, laid out in poster form by undergraduate students from colleges around the state, as well as graduate students, MD students, MD Residents and Faculty. The annual symposium brings together people from fields as different as medicine and engineering, who find their skills and their goals can sometimes compliment one another as they work toward scientific breakthroughs in health care.
This year’s symposium offered, among other things, a rare clinical diagnosis of Kawasaki’s Disease in an adult — a disease usually seen in children. A first-year medical student offered a proposal he hopes will inspire the training of young MD Residents across the country to motivate them to conduct quality improvement projects in their own practices. And another high-tech 3-D anatomy teaching tool was demonstrated by the Anatomy geniuses at the John A. Burns School of Medicine, who are working to make the most minute anatomical details accessible in what looks incredibly real, in a way you can access using your cellphone.
We invite you, through a video, to wander along with us, for a short visit to the 2019 Biomedical Sciences and Health Disparities Symposium sponsored by the University of Hawaiʻi Mānoa John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM), RMATRIX II, Hawaiʻi INBRE, RCMI Hawaiʻi and the UH Cancer Center. Music is Synergy from the awesome YouTube Free Music Library.
