The University of Arizona Superfund Research Program Training Core view is that education is a life-long process and that students should constantly seek out new challenges and activities to enrich their educational experience, whether they are at the undergraduate, graduate, or post-doctoral level. This philosophy has engendered a large group of successful Trainees who continue to express that they appreciate that the UA SRP provides opportunities to: 1) to present at our Colloquium as well as at local and national meetings; 2) engage in working with communities that are impacted by proximity to contamination; 3) work with cutting edge scientists on undergraduate, thesis, dissertation and post-doctoral research; 4) develop writing skills by writing manuscripts, applying for scholarships, and in some cases write grants or reports. The Core's most popular activity is participation of Trainees in a research translation or community engagement activity. A highlight for this year was the participation of three Trainees in the Tohono O'odham Summer Youth Mining Education Days. The success of the Training Core in meeting their objectives is best illustrated by their continuing track record of placement of UA SRP graduates in positions that have direct impact on human and environmental health.
