JSU partners with UMMC to give high school students a pathway to medicine
On Saturday, March 5, up to 100 Mississippi high school students filled Jackson State University’s College Science Engineering and Technology building for the Exploring Healthcare Pathways Impact the Race Program.
The one-day event is held on participating college campuses throughout the state and allows students to engage and learn about the various health care programs offered at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. JSU, Mississippi State University and the University of Mississippi partnered with UMMC on this initiative.
“Exploring Health Care Pathways Program is significant because it provides students with a roadmap to becoming health care professionals. If we are going to increase and diversify our health care field, we have to start with students in our communities,” said Porscha Fuller, continuing educational specialist at UMMC.
