Rutgers Newark Health Conference: Breaking Barriers
Sat, April 1, 2017, 8:30 AM – 3:30 PM EDT
On Saturday, April 1st from 8:30 am - 3:30 pm, MAPS will be having its first health conference at Rutgers-Newark directed to college and high school students interested in the health field. The subtitle of this conference is Breaking Barriers and it will focus on exposing students coming from minority and disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds to the health field. This conference will focus on providing talks and workshops for students interested in or preparing to apply to health professional schools. It will also serve as a way to recruit high school students in the local area into Rutgers and eventually a health professional program of their choice. MAPS hopes to serve as a community hub for students in Newark.
