Kate Morton was selected through a highly competitive national application process to participate in the 8th Annual Paul Ambrose Scholars Program (PASP) by the Association for Prevention Teaching and Research (APTR) and was invited to attend the PASP student leadership symposium, which was held June 25-28, 2009 in Washington DC. She was among 44 students selected from more than 230 well-qualified applicants. Paul Ambrose scholars are graduate medical, dental, physician assistant, nursing, and pharmacy students dedicated to creating new visions, models, and experiences for health professions education.
PASP is planned and implemented by APTR and sponsored by the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP) of the US Department of Health and Human Services in collaboration with the American Medical Student Association and Community-Campus Partnerships for health.
Kate is eligible to receive a micro-grant to implement a health promotion project in her community or at UNM. Examples of past projects include the development of an inner-city youth health education course in program, the execution of free community screening for alcoholism, the creation of an elective course in preventive medicine for pharmacy students, the implementation of a depression screening program at a free community clinic, and the production of an HIV risk reduction health education video series for at-risk youth.
