As a magazine publication that works to increase our community’s knowledge and awareness of various issues pertaining to science, ethics. research, and current events, our Scientifica Team strongly believes that it is important for our members to engage with the issues they write about through acts of service in our community.
We have developed a platform for students to engage with pertinent social issues such as Mental Health, Environmental Conservation, Representation of Minority Groups in STEM, and other such issues. We will be uploading resources for students to learn about current events on the topics listed below, and we hope to supplement these readings with volunteering events in our community so students can play an active role in engaging with the causes they are most passionate about.
We are the future doctors, lawyers, researchers, educators, and policy makers, and it is our civic responsibility to use our privilege to work to achieve equity in all aspects of our lives. For this reason, we encourage our members and staff to use this platform as a means of furthering their awareness of various social issues.
The issues we are currently focusing on are listed below; however, if you feel as though we omitted a topic that you would like to learn more about, please reach out to us so we can work to incorporate it into our community outreach platform!
