Lauren Boerger awarded Gerber Foundation scholarship to attend OsteoCHAMPS summer camp at MSU
Lauren Boerger, a junior at Fremont High School, was selected by MSU to attend the OsteoCHAMPS summer program, which will be held this July. Lauren’s participation in the program will be completely funded by a $1,500 scholarship provided by The Gerber Foundation.
OsteoCHAMPS was established in 2000 to encourage, prepare and foster the health career interest of high school students across the state of Michigan. It is an intense 9-day residential summer program of the Osteopathic Medical School at Michigan State University. The program provides a range of instruction in the health sciences for students interested in entering one of the many healthcare fields.
Lauren is looking forward to exploring more about the various fields of medicine so that she can choose a path that might suit her best. She is currently an OsteoScholar through the Osteopathic Foundation of West Michigan and is also interning at Spectrum Health Gerber Memorial during the summer as well as during the 2019-20 school year.
The mentoring offered to students through OsteoCHAMPS will facilitate Lauren’s success well beyond the summer program. OsteoCHAMPS staff aims to be a year-round resource to alums, providing guidance and tools to enhance academic success and career development.
The curriculum in the OsteoCHAMPS program includes courses, hands-on activities and field trips where both students will learn about anatomy and physiology, mathematics, medical research, physical examination skills, and general study skills. Many of the fine OsteoCHAMPS alums (over 500 students) have advanced to colleges and universities around the country in a wide range of degree programs.
The Gerber Foundation is proud to support local students in their pursuit of a career in the healthcare industry. More information can be found at www.gerberfoundation.org.

Sounds good but you have an older child at home?
There is also a Summer Teen Program that was established for 13-16 year olds.This program is about building life skills such as: resume building, entrepreneurship, cooking, and college visits. It also incorporates many fun field trips including swimming and kayaking. It will be in operation the same days and times as Summer Magic. The teen program is a traveling program. This means participants will leave their site to complete the day’s activities as a larger teen group and then be dropped of at their starting sites at the end of each day.
