Dayi and Josh Talk to Health Science Students about Autism Research


RASL members Dayi Bian and Josh Wade spoke to health science students at Glencliff High School on Wednesday. Many of the students are considering careers in healthcare, including roles in Psychology, Occupational Therapy, and Medicine. Research at RASL aims to address issues related to Autism Spectrum Disorder, as well as Schizophrenia, elder care, and mobility impairment.


Students were also encouraged to get a jump start on their career preparation by getting involved in free MOOCs, such as edX and Coursera, as well as participating in Vanderbilt University’s research opportunities for High School students, including Vanderbilt Summer Academy and Vanderbilt Center for Science Outreach.
