Profiles
of people, programs & partnerships
at Middlesex Community College
Every year, Middlesex welcomes a continuing array of
innovative teaching and learning strategies to help our students
succeed in the classroom, the community and their careers.
In this "Health & STEM" issue of Profiles, we highlight
MCC's many pioneering initiatives that promote success in
the fields of science, technology, engineering, math and health
care. Our new Health & STEM Pathways Center supports and
advises students as they prepare for careers in these critical fields. The Academy of
Health Professions (AHP) offers training in "stackable" modules so students can work
in a health care setting and continue their education.
Through the dedication of our faculty, like Biology Professor Mariluci
Bladon and Chemistry Professor John Savage who are featured in this issue, our
STEM students are challenged and encouraged to explore these fascinating fields
inside and outside the classroom, and in the workplace.
Middlesex alumni are also taking the skills they learned here out into the community
and orchestrating positive change. Former dentist Martha Forero (Class of '07) shares
how she discovered her passion for preventive oral-health care through our Dental
Hygiene Program.
These are just a few of the many ways Middlesex welcomes new opportunities and
promotes student success. We hope you enjoy reading about the many exciting people,
programs and partnerships MCC has to offer.
