NC–HOSA Conference

Each spring, NCABR attends the State Conference for the North Carolina Health Occupations Students of America (NC–HOSA).

At the conference, NCABR talks to hundreds of middle and high school students about the countless bioscience career opportunities available to them. NCABR’s conference booth features a wide range of educational resources about those careers and about bioscience in general.

The conference is held at the Koury Convention Center, in Greensboro.

Ethics Forum

Each fall, NCABR meets with high school students from throughout North Carolina at the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics, in Durham. At the day-long ethics forum, NCABR staff hold small-group discussions with students and mock exercises that allow students to confront ethical issues surrounding important bioscience topics, such as genetic testing.
