On September 20th, the MN Urban AHEC took part in the second annual Community Day at the Urban Research and Outreach-Engagement Center (UROC) in North Minneapolis. MN Urban AHEC and MN AHEC Program Office staff were on hand to educate attendees about the opportunities available through our programs.
Community Day coincided with the inauguration week of University of Minnesota President Eric Kaler. President Kaler attended the event and gave a brief talk, along with presentations by other leaders and stakeholdres in UROC's mission.
UROC links the University of Minnesota in vital public partnership with urban communities to advance learning, improve quality of life, and discover breakthrough solutions to critical problems. The MN Urban AHEC is housed in the UROC building to take advantage of these collaboration opportunities.
