Showcasing New Partners in the Allied Health and Science Pathway
- Mr. Craig Nordlum is creating an after school program to allow students to become certified solar panel installers;
- Science partnerships with Yale (Physics dept., Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Medical School, Public Health, Peabody Museum of Natural History, Yale-New Haven Teachers Institute)
- Field trips (10/22 and 10/23) to the Yale Center for British Art on “The Art of Observation”;

- Support from the Yale Physics Department for an engineering project in MBA Physics classroom for students to build, design, and create their own speakers.
- Linda Bergonzi King (Masters Public Health) from Yale New Haven Hospital and Cyndi Stern (MA, MPH) from the CT Public Health Association continue to support digital media messaging in our Public Health course. We are forging an exciting partnership with Brooke Logan, Program Director of the New Haven Health Department.
- Dr. Bill Arsenio of Einstein University is doing action research with Mr. Willems’ students around institutional fairness and distribution of capital assets in the U.S.A.. He will share the research results with our students this spring, after he has completed his surveys and compiled the results.
- Laura Troidle (Physician’s Assistant), Dr. Shin Lin, and Dr. Fred Finkelstein of Aventis (Metabolism Associates) are partnering with us to bring clinical experiences and authenticity to our new senior capstone Allied Health and Science course “Medical Science and Technology”. They have secured funding for us to deepen and enrich the course. We are starting with a case study of a “typical” dialysis patient. The “Medical Science and Technology” course direction is driven by student questions around medical case studies.
- Medical Science and Technology students took on a video challenge to promote the Affordable Care Act in September. See http://health.younginvincibles.org/video-contest/ for more information, and to vote for the MBA submissions!
