Brown’s medical school to partner with Central Falls SMART Clinic on school pathways program
The SMART-Plus Pathways program will inspire and educate students in Central Falls about careers in health and medicine with the long-term goal of building a more diverse workforce of care providers.
PROVIDENCE, R.I. [Brown University] — Students in Central Falls, R.I., are about to learn more about how good health impacts every aspect of life — and how they might someday join the medical professionals who provide care to improve the health and lives of others.
As students in the city’s Calcutt Middle School return for the 2022-23 academic year in August, the school will be home to a SMART Health and Wellness Clinic thanks to the generosity of the Warren Alpert Foundation. It will also serve as the inaugural site for SMART Plus — a professional pathways initiative led by Brown University’s Warren Alpert Medical School designed to spark student interest in health and medicine careers.
