WHAT IS THE ASTROCYTE INITIATIVE:
The Astrocyte Initiative is a project of Medicine Encompassed striving towards increasing awareness surrounding mental health. Through interactive platforms and outreach to student audiences, our primary goal is to tackle existing notions in this field, as well as providing a means of support for students. With our members’ efforts, we hope to destigmatize the current image of mental health and assist in maximizing resources that are currently available.
All applications for The Astrocyte Initiative's GENERAL DEPARTMENTS are accepted and reviewed on a ROLLING BASIS (no deadline). It is probable that The Astrocyte Initiative will continue expanding with additional departments over time, allowing for more leadership positions to open; however, current members of TAI will be given precedence to become a Co-Lead (for any departments launched in the future).
The available departments and descriptions are located in the SECOND page of the application.
WHAT IS MEDICINE ENCOMPASSED (PARENT ORGANIZATION OF THE ASTROCYTE INITIATIVE):
At Medicine Encompassed, we are a completely student-run 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization aiming to promote awareness and increase accessibility for those interested in future medical careers through various mediums. With a team of STEM-oriented individuals that are also passionate about biology, we are seeking to demonstrate the wide scope of what medicine encompasses. Recognizing the importance of expanding the medical field, our organization believes in accepting people from all backgrounds under one common interest. By bridging the gap between medicine, underrepresented minorities, and students from low-income backgrounds, our team of like-minded individuals is dedicated to creating more resources and opportunities in all medical fields.
All individuals can be a member of both Medicine Encompassed's main organization operations, as well as The Astrocyte Initiative! The application for Medicine Encompassed can be found at this link: http://bit.ly/me-application
