Jeopardy! -- and gastric endoscopy
BOSTON -- It was not a typical Thursday afternoon for sophomores from Madison Park Vocational Technical High School in Boston. They played Jeopardy!, took a tour of an operating room and watched a gastric endoscopy procedure.
These eight students were members of the Blue Scholars Program, a partnership between Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts and the high school.
The Blue Scholars Program targets high potential ninth grade students and provides academic as well as enrichment experiences to help them maintain a B-grade point average or higher, according to Jackie Haley, a community relations specialist for BCBSMA. This unique partnership affords the students opportunities to explore their interests and broaden their access to information and resources so that they may realize their life goals.
