Health Sciences PhD Student Inducted Into ACSM Leadership and Diversity Program
Francisco Morales Acuna, M.D., a student in the 2017 cohort of the Interdisciplinary Health Sciences PhD Program, was recently accepted into the American College of Sports Medicine's (ACSM) Leadership and Diversity Training Program, Level Two.
The purpose of the program is to encourage Ph.D. and M.D./D.O. students who are also ACSM student members from minority groups underrepresented in the sciences to participate in activities that will lead to increased ACSM service, enhanced pathways to degree completion, and successful post-terminal degree experiences.
