RISE Scholars had the opportunity to attend the Annual Biomedical Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS) 2021 Conference, November 10-12. ABRCMS continues to be one of the largest communities of underrepresented minorities in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Students attend this conference to present their research, enhance professional development skills, explore graduate schools, and network. RISE is honored to have attended the virtual ABRCMS conference this year and we congratulate our scholars on their incredible wins along with the other bright RISE Scholars who presented!
