Brandon Dixon of the Palm Bay SDA Church, Florida has been
selected from a large pool of students nationwide and overseas
as 1 of 20 students for MITHS 2007. MITHS (Minority Introduction
To the Health Sciences) is a challenging three-week summer program
designed to introduce high school students to careers in the health
sciences, while totally immersed in campus life.

The MITHS program is FREE to the participants. The room, board,
and educational expenses will be covered by the Black Alumni of
Loma Linda University, the Loma Linda University School of Medicine,
and the Loma Linda University School of Dentistry. The transportation
to and from Loma Linda University will be his responsibility and only
major expense.

Brandon will have the first-hand opportunity to experience what
happens on a health sciences university campus—basic sciences
(anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, pathology, pharmacology),
clinical courses (nursing, medicine, medical technology, dentistry,
dental hygiene, physical therapy, public health) and research. He
will also develop time management and study skills in a workshop
program specifically designed for him.

The MITHS experience will prepare Brandon for his senior year and
show him what to expect in college. In addition, there will be an
opportunity to make new friends, meet with the Loma Linda faculty
and alumni, and participate in social and spiritual events.

Brandon is the son of Roy Dixon, Palm Bay SDA Church Treasurer
and his wife Ada.
