Henry Ford Health Department of Surgery High School Mentorship Program

Open to any Detroit-area high school student interested in a career in medicine, or learning about other career paths.

The program will be conducted during the academic year. Students can also apply for a paid summer internship ($1,000) awarded to 10 selected students.

  • Participants will visit Henry Ford Hospital and participate in skills in the Surgical Simulation Suite on Saturday mornings throughout the academic year. They will be taught suturing, knot tying and simulation surgical skills. Many of these simulations are for minimally invasive procedures, and these skills should be easily performed by the young generation.
  • Participants will also tour the hospital, talk to other healthcare professionals and medical students.
  • 10 participants will be selected for a paid summer internship to learn more about their desired career and next steps to succeed.

The program is led by Dr. Ikenna “Ike” Okereke, Vice Chairman of the Department of Surgery and System Director of Thoracic Surgery. Dr. Okereke is a native Detroiter and ran a similar program in Texas for 5 years before returning back home in 2021. With support from Henry Ford Innovations, Dr. Okereke is connecting with Detroit-area schools to inspire students to careers in medicine. He feels that these students can succeed if they do not become deterred by doubt or fear of failure.

Data from Dr. Okereke’s previous program in Texas showed that students were more likely to answer the following questions more positively after participating in the program:

  • “I am interested in pursuing a career in science, technology, engineering or medicine.”
  • “I know what subjects I want to study in college.”
  • “I am interested in pursuing a career as a surgeon.”
  • “I am prepared for the academic obligations of college.”
  • “I am confident that I will accomplish my career goals.”
  • “I have the dexterity and physical ability required to become a surgeon one day.”

To apply, email iokerek1@hfhs.org, or call, 313-916-2698. 

“My main goal is to show students that they have the ability to succeed in whatever field they want. My saying is that ‘if you can see it, you can be it.’ I simply want to provide the students with role models and expose them to life as a professional.”

The Wage and Hour Division (WHD) enforces some of our nation’s most comprehensive labor laws. When we find violations, we often recover unpaid wages on behalf of employees. The agency makes every effort to locate and notify all employees due back wages. If we cannot find an employee, we hold their back wages for three years while we continue our efforts to locate them. After three years, if we remain unable to find the person, we are required to send the money to the U.S. Treasury.

If you think you may be owed back wages collected by WHD, you can search our database of workers for whom we have money waiting to be claimed.

Protect your G.I. Bill benefits from scams

 

Some educational institutions and programs use misleading practices and overpromise their degrees’ value and earning power. Without knowing the warning signs to protect yourself, this could lead to a depletion of your education benefits.

The VA is encouraging veterans and their beneficiaries to know these education fraud warning signs and the best practices to avoid falling victim to a scam.

The types of scams targeting your education benefits include:  

  • Job scams. Job Boards or Advertisements targeting specific demographics may be misleading or fake and require you to give personal information or money to get a job. 
  • Student loan scams. Educational institutions may promise immediate student loan forgiveness or debt cancellation to entice veterans to enroll in classes. For most borrowers, loan forgiveness is only available through programs requiring many years of qualifying payments or other qualifying criteria. Here is a list of Student Debt Relief “Do’s and Don’ts” to help borrowers avoid scams
  • Scholarship scams. Educational institutions may “guarantee” veterans a scholarship in exchange for a redemption/processing fee …

VA urging veterans, staff to get latest COVID-19 vaccine booster

VA officials are again urging medical center patients and staff to get the latest COVID-19 vaccine booster, this time in response to the latest wave of the illness spreading across America.

The department will be among the first federal agencies to get doses of the vaccine, according to VA Under Secretary for Health Dr. Shereef Elnahal. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention earlier this month approved the new vaccine booster and are recommending it for anyone six months or older who has not gotten a coronavirus vaccine in recent weeks.

“The vaccine that has proven over and over again to be safe and effective,” Elnahal told reporters at a press event Monday.

“It protects against severe outcomes and death significantly. As we are seeing hospitalizations go up across the country connected to the virus, we’re concerned that if folks don’t get this latest booster, they will not benefit from the extra protection.”

Read the full story in Military Times.

 

America’s veterans are the prime target for domestic terrorists — as recruits

Of the more than 1,000 people who were charged with a crime for their participation in the January 6 attack on the Capitol, nearly 1 in 5 was a US military veteran.

While leaders of extremist groups like the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers were ultimately convicted for seditious conspiracy for their deliberate attempts to breach the Capitol, critics argue their influence on military veterans — and the subsequent impact on society — has not yet been fully realized due to the adoption of their radical ideology by mainstream politicians.

“Against All Enemies,” a documentary that explores the risk of veterans being radicalized by extremist groups, was featured at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, earning glowing reviews from critics. Variety called the documentary “a grim diagnosis of a fast-spreading cancer,” that “may provide much less reassurance than cause for alarm, but its wakeup call is certainly worth heeding.”

Ken Harbaugh, a former Navy pilot, cofounder of Team Rubicon, and producer of the new documentary, spoke with Insider about why being aware of the problem is only the first step toward a solution. “Against All Enemies” will have its theatrical release in early 2024.

Apply the same strategies the Math Mights characters use to help elementary school learners feel excited and confident about math! Math Mights is an engaging show from the Michigan Learning Channel that teaches math strategies by connecting to characters that will help students understand math processes differently than just solving problems one way. This series promotes students’ communicated reasoning so they are able to confidently explain their thinking. It also provides a common language in schools so students can learn about the characters and the strategies in first grade, and then apply the same strategies to higher-level concepts as they grow.
The Michigan Learning Channel is excited to host Shannon McCartney, creator of Math Mights, for a series of virtual professional learning workshops that will help support educators and families who want to use this exciting show to support learning.

 

 

 

Students can major in any of the 90+ majors the university offers. All incoming SOAR students take LIBS 191: Academic Renewal Seminar for Returning Adults, a one-credit, eight-week, online course to refresh or enhance their academic skills – strategies for academic reading, writing, note-taking, studying and researching. An added benefit is that the course brings new SOAR students together in community so that they can build a supportive network of peers which contributes to their university experience and overall success. 

  1. Prospective students must be over age 25 (or if under 25, a parent or veteran).
  2. Must be eligible for financial aid (Pell Grant) with no loans currently in default.
  3. Cannot owe a balance at another college or university.
  4. Have a minimum of 24 transferable credits from other colleges with a recalculated GPA of 2.5 or higher.
  5. Michigan residency required.
  6. Please see attached flyer.
  7. Our goal in SOAR is to graduate every student! Here is a link to our updated webpage with links for applying: umdearborn.edu/soar
