Can anyone give me any information on the HUES program. If you took part in it was it helpful? I'm unsure about whether or not I will be majoring in science( I will most likely to with international realtuons and a minor in global health) but there is a good chance I will go pre med or maybe nursing.

    It helps. It helps you establish early connections to key individuals involved in science education, while also exposing you to various issues of the science curriculum at Emory. You'll also get a little taste as you will be given a small assignment (at least that's how it was in my year) related to a current issue in science related to perhaps some health issue disproportionately affecting a certain ethnic minority or people of some certain socioeconomic status. Stuff that may be relevant to the targets of the program (minorities in the fields of science, including women of all ethnicities). Again, this exercise kind of gives you insight to not only issues relevant to a person pursuing a career in nursing, medicine, or public health, but also gives you exposure to the problem based learning you will do in the intro. biology labs here (and perhaps to a much smaller extent, general chemistry. They seem to have had difficulty integrating current research/issues into the gen. chem. sequence. Most of the focus has been on reforming intro. bio.) Plus the little meetings/events are kind of nice. You won't be hungry, I'll tell you that.
    It probably helped me less because I'm an INSPIRE member, so I automatically get very close access to heavy hitters in science research and education at Emory. But Hues also got me closer to faculty involved in mentoring, learning services, and the like. Also, you get to establish some early friendships (which may, to some degree lead to some clique formation, but I wasn't a part of that).
