In May of 2012, OGTV, came to the NIH to learn about the largest medical research campus in the world. As we kick off STEM Solutions Conference and the USA Science Fair at the Washington Convention Center today, OGTV will continue to explore the methods, pedagogies, and best practices used to engage minority participation in the science, technology, engineering and math fields. In our national campaign to Move STEM In Communities of Color, and in the case of health care, the term health disparities is making a transition to health equity. The advancements in medicine and minority health at the NIH becomes a fascinating discovery and an opportunity to encourage more minority you to engage in science.
