Dream Makers Testimonial

Anissa Gallegos, UNM student

As a middle-school or high-school student, you can gain exposure to various health professions while building science, math, and leadership skills in the Dream Makers Health Careers Program. The program is a joint effort between the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center for Diversity and New Mexico school districts.

Learn Skills for College and Beyond

During the Dream Makers program, you'll take part in opportunities such as:

  • Dissecting specimens
  • Learning how to take blood pressure and temperature
  • Listening and asking questions during a health professionals panel discussion
  • Talking to University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center students
  • Activities planned by your school club advisor
  • Tour to University of New Mexico
  • Year-end awards banquet

Benefits of Dream Makers

Dream Makers helps you better understand the importance of higher education and the ways culture impacts health. You're especially invited to participate if you're a first-generation college attendee, resident of an economically or educationally disadvantaged area or a member of a demographic that's underrepresented in medicine.

Bring Dream Makers to Your School

Ask your school if it offers or would consider offering Dream Makers.

Support Services

As a participant in programming offered by Hope, Enrichment, And Learning Transform Health in New Mexico (HEALTH NM), you can access online and in-person student support resources, such as tutoring, laptop loans and resource libraries.
