Centro SOL has collaborated for the third consecutive year with the Johns Hopkins Underrepresented in Medical Professions (JUMP) an organization that promotes the success of students from underrepresented populations—including ethnic and racial minorities, as well as first generation and low-income college students of any race—that are interested in pursuing careers in medicine and other health professions. Emilio Miret comes from New York, is currently attending Johns Hopkins University. During the summer 2017, Emilio has been the assistant coordinator for our Centro SOL Summer Scholars Program. Emilio has demonstrated tremendous committement, and passion for his work and the interaction with our scholars this summer. He has been working closely in planning activities, supervising students, and reporting the program. We forsee a very successful future for Emilio who made this an very successful summer.
