Watch UMB CURE Scholars in ‘From West Baltimore’ Documentary

Five UMB CURE Scholars talk about their lives in middle school, their fears, and their hopes in From West Baltimore, a documentary first airing Oct. 15 on Maryland Public Television (MPT).

Produced by MedSchool Maryland Productions, the documentary is about West Baltimore, a community plagued with violence, high unemployment, and generational poverty. The students, however, have a ray of hope thanks to the CURE Scholars Program that matches them with mentors, challenges them to rise above their circumstances, and sets them on a path to a promising career in medicine.

The program is scheduled to air on MPT, Channel 22, on two dates:

Sunday, Oct. 15, 6 p.m.
Tuesday, Oct. 17, 1:30 a.m.

You can watch a trailer on the From West Baltimore website and learn more about the UMB CURE Scholars Program here.
