T-SCORE aims to establish a learning community of teachers, students and researchers committed to bringing relevant community-based health issues into the classroom. We believe empowered teachers, engaged in a comprehensive professional development program, will have a positive impact on students’ self-efficacy, knowledge, and interest in health science careers. By focusing on teachers as the main agents of change, T-SCORE hopes to increase the number of underrepresented and minority students pursuing careers in health sciences.
