The mission of the UMMC's community health outreach program is to empower local communities by giving them the health education and resources they need. We work with community partners in creating prevention and wellness programs, which leads to healthier communities.

Our outreach plans also include reducing violence in school-aged children, increasing attendance and supporting school readiness. UMMC's youth-focused programs lay the foundation to start kids off on the path to success. We also run a Workforce Development program that offers skills training and job coaching for city residents.
