Martin’s Point teamed up with the University of New England for their 2023 Health Careers Exploration Camp—a joint effort to increase the pipeline of future health care workers while advancing health equity. Held at UNE’s Portland and Biddeford campuses, the event welcomed 30 high school students from both urban underserved and rural communities. Over three days, the students explored 12 health professions through dynamic, hands-on activities and learned about various educational paths. Highlights included a Martin’s Point session on medical assistant roles and a UNE workshop focused on aiding individuals with neurodevelopmental disabilities.
