Join UMB CURE Scholars for the Program’s STEM Expo on April 28

Members of the UMB community are invited to join us for the UMB CURE Scholars STEM Expo on Saturday, April 28, from 10 a.m. to noon at the School of Pharmacy to see posters and research articles written by the CURE Scholars.

The UMB CURE Scholars Program currently enrolls 80 sixth-, seventh-, and eighth-grade students from three schools in West Baltimore. They receive weekly mentoring and tutoring from more than 250 volunteers within the Baltimore community, most of whom are UMB students.

Our scholars have researched dozens of topics in STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics), including cancer health disparities, artificial intelligence, renewable energy, nano-robotics, and more. Articles written by scholars are available in the UMB CURE Journal of STEM, which will be unveiled and distributed at the event.

We would be honored and privileged to welcome you to our exposition to learn and give valuable feedback to our scholars as they present their work.

Guests also will be treated to a special keynote address presented by UMB CURE Scholar Shereen Farquharson, who researched the prevalence of gestational trophoblastic disease in African-Americans in 2017.

We hope that you will join us for this inspiring event.

Please visit our website for more information about the program

UMB-CURE-Scholars

Mentors Needed for UMB’s CURE Scholars Program

The UMB CURE Scholars Program is in need of UMB students, faculty, and staff to volunteer as mentors during the 2017-18 school year.

Consider becoming a mentor and nurturing the career of a future health care professional. Your knowledge and experience can make a huge impact on the life of a middle school student from West Baltimore, and the commitment will not require much of your time.

Mentors will be expected to:

  • Commit to at least one year of mentorship, with contact at least once a week or bi-weekly.
  • Assist their mentee with the transition from student to professional, supporting them in decisions (such as choosing the best high school or college).
  • Allow their mentee to shadow them at work or accompany them to a meeting, conference, or seminar.
  • Create goals for their own personal and professional development through participation in this program.

Those interested in becoming a mentor are invited to a Lunch & Learn on Thursday, Oct. 5, at noon in the Office of Procurement (Main Conference Room) in the Saratoga Building.

You can RSVP for The Lunch & Learn here and learn more about the CURE Scholars Program by checking out its web page.

To apply as a mentor, register here.

Do not hesitate to reach out with questions or concerns to Borndavid McCraw, UMB CURE Scholars Program mentoring coordinator, bmccraw@umaryland.edu.

Thank you for your support in cultivating a vibrant mentorship community!
