This year the Golden Eagle Intertribal Society, the Center for American Indian Research and Studies and Mississippi INBRE Telenutrition Center have come together to serve our indigenous community members. Just like many Native American tribes across the U.S., the Choctaw children of the Bogue Homa community have been significantly impacted by the effects of COVID-19 and many will be missing family members at their gatherings during this holiday season. At this time, we are asking the USM community to help us collect new unwrapped toys and books for 121 children of all ages (0-18).
There are three ways to get involved:
(1) Drop off unwrapped toys or books at the School of Kinesiology and Nutrition, Joseph Greene Hall 304.
(2) Purchase a toy/book from the Amazon Wish List.
(3) Send a monetary donation using the Cash App to $BokHoumaToyDrive.
We kindly request that donations and toys/books be submitted or dropped off by end of business day on Wednesday, December 16th.
Mississippi INBRE Telenutrition Center is now accepting applications for its 2021 summer research program. The Mississippi INBRE Outreach Scholars program is a 10-week community-based research program for Mississippi college students. The program is a perfect opportunity for students who need or want to gain hands-on research experience.
Applications are due January 29, 2021. For detailed information and application, please visit here.
