Personal Journeys, Professional Paths: Navigating the Crossroads of a Research Center
Runtime - 41 minutes
Spero M. Manson, Ph.D. presents at the 2008 Teachers College Annual Winter Roundtable at Columbia University.
How can we increase the presence of American Indians and Alaska Native in leadership roles in science? Dr. Manson describes a highly successful postdoctoral program that prepares young AI/AN scientists for careers as independent, externally funded agents, who work at the nexus of issues in culture, aging, and health. This is a skill-driven approach for intensively mentoring of Native trainees without requiring relocation from their home institutions. Wide implications for education and training in multiple settings.
