NEW Health Clinic to be built @ AHAHS

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.

Happy Holidays & Happy New Year!

Congrats to this year's Dream Makers & MESA Club! We experienced a huge growth in membership and now have approx. 75 members. During Fall semester students had the opportunity to learn from special guests from the medical and health community such varied topics including forensics, dissection and holistic health & nutrition. Kudos to Ms. Russell, Ms. Leyba & Ms. Elwess. During the holiday break, club sponsors (Russell & Elwess) were invited to present at UNM's Office of Diversity regarding the success of our program. Special thanks to Ms. Smith for media support.
