Abstract : This report chronicles activities of the Minority Health Professions Foundation's tenth symposium on Career Opportunities in Biomedical and Public Health Sciences. The Symposium was held in Los Angeles, California, April 3-5, 1996, with thirteen hundred thirty-two (1332) minority students in attendance. The Symposium was designed to influence minority students to pursue a career in a biomedical or public health science. Students were treated to plenary speakers and workshop speakers who conducted ninety-seven career workshops. They also were treated to forty-one exhibits. Nineteen student participants presented research posters. All students received 100% fiscal support to attend the Symposium. Preliminary results of evaluation instruments revealed that many students were influenced to pursue a biomedical or public health science.
