The University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) is transforming lives in West Baltimore with initiatives like the UMB CURE Scholars Program, a groundbreaking health care pipeline program that serves 65 sixth- and seventh-graders from three middle schools near the University.
The program, in its second year, identifies promising middle school students and prepares them for health care and research careers through hands-on workshops, lab experiences, and mentorship from UMB faculty, students, and staff.
The aim of the program is to break the cycle of poverty in West Baltimore, according to the article.
