ArkanSONO SEPA in partnership with Cancer Research Training & Education at the UAMS Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute Announce our second annual Summer 2022 Virtual Webinar Series on Cancer. These sessions will be broadcast live on Zoom each afternoon from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. from June 26 to June 29, 2023.
This four-session virtual weekly webinar series will provide a general survey of the anatomy, histology and histopathology of various organ systems with a focus on cancer. Major cancers to be covered in this webinar series include: skin, breast, lung, prostate, pancreatic, colorectal, cervical/ ovarian/endometrial, and kidney/bladder. The sessions will utilize models, virtual human dissector programs, 3D reconstructions of CT scan in patients on the SECTRA Education Portal, ultrasound imaging of organs in standardized patients, and virtual histology and histopathology resources. All sessions will be held on Zoom and conducted by UAMS faculty.
Note: This series is targeted to upper level high school students (i.e., juniors and seniors) and college students. Previous knowledge of general anatomy or histology is helpful but not required.

What is the ArkanSONO SEPA program?
ArkanSONO SEPA is a technology based outreach exposure program for high school students in the Little Rock School District (LRSD) in central Arkansas. The goal of this program is to use the transformative power of point-of-care ultrasound and other imaging technologies to stimulate student interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields and careers. ArkanSONO is supported by a five-year, $1.27 million dollar Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) grant from the NIGMS.
This project is funded by a Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) award from the National Institutes of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS), National Institutes of Health (NIH).
