Albuquerque -- Join us at the AHA Family Center on January 31st, 2012 5:30pm-7:30pm. Community Health Partners from UNM Medical School and College of Nursing and the University of New Mexico Hospital will profile plans for the new community clinic to be built on campus. These partners recently received a grant to fulfill this purpose. Established educational collaborations with these health and medical partners include: Dream Makers/MESA Health Careers Club (sponsored by the med school's Office of Diversity and Dr. Romero-Leggott) and our senior internships with UNMH's diversity training program which includes medical simulation training.
