UTRGV PA program celebrates 25 years of service to the Valley with this year’s White Coat Ceremony


The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley Department of Physician Assistant Studies commemorated its anniversary with a White Coat Ceremony to welcome 100 new PA students.

During UTRGV’s recent JSTEM Summer Program, area high school students learned how to solve a real-world, original research problem by collaborating on building water biofiltration systems. The camp helped them develop content and skills in specific STEM and JSTEM (Journalism, Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) disciplines. And as an added incentive, they got to interact via video conference with students in Ghana who were working on a similar project. (UTRGV Photos by Paul Chouy)

Sand, rocks and permeable concrete can help save lives, but you have to know how to use them. And a recent JSTEM Summer Program at UTRGV taught area high school students how to do just that.
