Marquette University's Manuel Santiago will explain Medal, a career exploration program focused on medicine, architecture, law, dentistry and engineering presented in conjunction with several post-secondary institutions.

¡Adelante! covers topics ranging from immigration issues and HIV counseling to Latino artists. The program repeats on Channel 36 the same evening at 12:30 a.m. and Sundays at 5:30 p.m. Patricia Gomez is the host and producer. The program is broadcast with English captions. English portions are subtitled in Spanish. ###
