LEXINGTON - Ashley Thomas, daughter of Barbara Thomas, of Louisa, is participating in the Kentucky Appalachian Science Enrichment Program (KASEP), sponsored by the University of Kentucky.

Niki Moore, daughter of Ida K. Castle, of Inez, is also participating.

KASEP is a five-week summer experience for students who represent underserved minority groups in health care professions from the eastern and central part of the United States. The program, which is funded by a grant from the National Cancer Institute, is structured to enhance each participantís scientific problem solving and critical thinking skills, said Pamella Shaw, D.M.D., director of KASEP.

Students are rising high school sophomores. Those eligible include African-American, Native-American and Appalachian students who have demonstrated an interest in pursuing a science or mathematics-related career and have a record of academic achievement.

Activities include a group study of case histories of selected health-related issues: academic experiences in science and mathematics, learning skills instruction, career exploration in science, mathematics, engineering, scientific research, and health careers, scientific site visits and field experiences.
