THREE SCOOPS!

SCOOP ONE

By now, you should have all received a letter from RPS about your child's assigned school for the coming year. Given the boundary changes, this is the attempt by the district to remove errors prior to the fall. If the confirmation you received from Rochester Public Schools does not match what you believe is supposed to happen regarding your child's enrollment, please call Registration & Records to get it corrected ASAP!


SCOOP TWO

It's that time of year again . . . time to remind young adolescents of the importance of showering, fresh clothing and anti-perspirant/deodorant. While some middle school students are in a good hygiene routine, others might need a reminder. Please visit with your Comet about these important topics and reach out to counselors if you are in need of personal care supplies!


SCOOP THREE

I know a message went out last week, but as a reminder, students should not bring any sporting equipment to school unless it is for an organized practice and stored securely during the school day.

Is your child interested in medicine as a career?


From November 2nd to November 3rd, 2022, Mayo Clinic’s Center for Individualized Medicine will have their annual individualizing medicine conference! (https://individualizingmedicineconference.mayo.edu/)


This year’s focus will be on the exposome. Multiple top speakers will present on a variety of related topics.

  • Individualized medicine is among the newest forms of medical care based on a person’s genetic and genomic data.
  • The Center for Individualized Medicine discovers and integrates the latest in genome-based knowledge to personalize care for each Mayo Clinic patient.
  • In the future, your medical provider may be able to give you the best medical solutions based on your DNA and alert you to diseases or conditions that you might experience in your life.
  • The exposome is the measure of all the exposures of a person in their lifetime and how those exposures relate to health and disease.


This year, we will have a scholarship that will allow for a limited number (~30) of individuals to join the conference virtually for free. This is the first time we have offered such a scholarship, and high school teachers and students may apply.

If you are a successful applicant , you would be granted livestream access to the conference.

This would be an excellent opportunity for those that want to learn more about what may eventually become the future of medicine. There will be presentations held throughout the day.


Please email imconference@mayo.edu if you have further questions.
