Welcome to the Early Outreach Program
We are the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC)’s Early Outreach Program (EOP) – an academic pipeline program that facilitates the development of underrepresented K-12 minority students via educational enrichment in the core content areas of reading, math, and science. Since our conception in 1981, we have worked tirelessly to inspire independence, cultivate curiosity, and instill confidence in our students in order to help ensure their ability to matriculate into higher levels of education and ultimately health professions.
The health science theme for 2017 is CANCER and CANCER RESEARCH. The Project-Based curriculum will present students with a project idea and essential questions that will allow them to learn through discovery. Students work in teams to create a final project.
These Essential Questions and Project Based Learning activities will enable students to think critically about all aspects of food, various diseases, how to prevent them, and how socio-economic factors play a role in sickness and in health.
