HemaCare is committed to supporting the next generation of science and technology professionals through community outreach and educational programs. In a world that is increasingly reliant on science and technology, STEM education provides students with the necessary skill sets to enter the modern workforce. The STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) initiative is based on the premise that these fields should be taught using an integrative approach that focuses on real-world applications, rather than teaching each field in isolation. The hope is to instill in our young people not just the skills of their chosen field, but a more critical way of thinking, understanding, and exploring the world.
Statins are a class of cholesterol-lowering drugs that can protect against cardiovascular disease. These can slow the formation of plaques within the arteries (atherosclerosis). These atherosclerosic plaques are made of a mix of dead cells, oxidized (subjected to free radicals) low density lipoprotein (the undesirable cholesterol), and immune cells such a dendritic and T cells.
