AAPM Team Up
AAPM stands for American Association of Physicists in Medicine. The AAPM TEAM UP program is a mentorship program committed to placing eight medical physics students and/or AAPM members at four institutions for medical physics education, research, or internship experience that will enhance their professional development, research minority health needs, and enhance their post-scholastic careers. This program has three major elements in mind, the physics education for the student from experts in the field, potential placement post-graduation, and promotion of giving back to their communities. This work will receive support from six industry partners or institutions and rotate interns on a yearly basis.
Agape Pan-Tree is a formed partnership program with various food service organizations to provide nutritious foods to communities experiencing food shortages on account of income or general demographical economic distress. Providers distribute door to door or from their facilities. The outcome is not only more meals on the table, but also exposure to healthy options, as defined by research, and are organic as much as possible. This emphasis on proper nutrition, as backed by science, lends to a better sense of a person's well being that is often lacking as we embrace a processed, nutrient depleted food culture.
