UGA students (L-R Alexander Studebaker , Miranda Barr, Courtney Lowe, and Hunter Stubbs) visited Lisa Henderson’s epidemiology class at Griffin High School.

Students of Dr. Margie Paz, senior lecturer in the Department of Microbiology of the UGA Franklin College of Arts and Sciences, recently fulfilled a service-learning activity related to their Introduction to Microbiology Laboratory (MIBO 3510L) class.  They talked with students that attend Griffin High School about different fields of study in microbiology, as well as career paths, and college life on the UGA Griffin Campus.  It was an educational experience that aimed to provide UGA-Griffin students with an opportunity to gain enhanced learning, a broader appreciation of microbiology, and a sense of civic responsibility.
