UWM’s STAR program seeks to help fill that gap by preparing students from underrepresented backgrounds for graduate training and careers in aging and public health. The UWM STAR program is a multi-year, cohort-based program that matches students from underrepresented backgrounds with mentors to conduct research in aging and health disparities. It is based on successful programs developed by UWM’s Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) directed by Nigel Rothfels over the last 20 years. Karyn Frick will co-direct UW-Milwaukee Promoting Equity, Diversity, and Academic Success Through Aging Research Program (STAR) program.
