SOPHOMORES & JUNIORS: MSU has an incredible summer program called OsteoCHAMPS, that is designed to give a snapshot of what a Pre-Medical program would look like. It's July 8th-16th at MSU. We've had several Holton students attend who loved it! They were able to talk to doctors and have dinner with them in addition to participating in lab activities in biochemistry and anatomy and seeing cutting-edge technology. There are flyers with more information on Mrs. Wolfe's bulletin board. Deadline for application is March 1st. The link to the program is here:
