Five City College of New York undergraduates -- Maria Chaname, Christian Kadima, Angel Morquecho, Valeria Serrano and Emily Zheng -- will participate in a five-week program at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in June and July. The students will study medical interpreting and be mentored as they work on individual, specialized projects involving translational cancer health disparities throughout New York City.

This summer learning lab is sponsored by the CCNY-MSKCC Partnership program, and is a result of a collaboration formed by Biology Professor Karen Hubbard, the MSKCC collaborative director, and Associate Professor of Spanish and Comparative Literature Carlos Riobó, chair of Classical and Modern Languages and Literatures.
