The Mass General Youth Neurology Education and Research Program engages youth from communities underrepresented in neurology. We particularly focus on providing educational and research opportunities to female, Black, Latinx, American Indian, and low-income youth across Massachusetts.

We aim to inspire by offering exposure to leading neurologists and neuroscientists from diverse backgrounds, equip through paid opportunities to engage in mentored educational and research activities, and empower with structured support to translate contributions into publications, presentations, and awards that facilitate the academic advancement of participating youth.
