South Dakota LEND Program - RISE-UP

RISE-UP (Research Initiatives for Students) provides public health training opportunities for undergraduate students from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, to encourage and support the pursuit of graduate degrees. A collaboration of Kennedy Krieger Institute and the Maternal and Child Health Bureau, the program is funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. By promoting a more diversified and equal health system, the program strives to introduce highly qualified undergraduate students from under represented groups to the field of public health.
