STEM Lab students learn about the future of healthcare

Healthcare around the world is about to undergo a sea of change. In an era of 100-year life spans, patients who need care will also want to enjoy high quality of life throughout.

In medical settings, sustainable systems will be vital in balancing the advancement of healthcare with economic efficiency. At the same time, we are seeing incredible leaps in technology. Utilizing new technologies will be indispensable in finding solutions to healthcare needs.

“How can we contribute to global healthcare while looking 10 years ahead?”

Seventh grade students at STEM Lab are learning how to engineer synthetic blood in order to help solve some of our complex medical problems. Thank you to our partners Terumo Medical Corporation for teaching us about blood and centrifuges. Thank you to Vitalant for an engaging Field Experience. And thank you to our Panelists from The Department of Public Health, Vitalant, Terumo, the Colorado School of Public Health, and CSL Plasma who gave insightful feedback to our students' solution ideas.
