The Minority Medical Mentoring Program (MMMP) is accepting applications for the 2017-18 academic school year. This opportunity is designed for under-represented minority high school seniors enrolled in Asheville City and Buncombe County schools that participate in school-sanctioned internships. Candidates should have interest in the pursuit of a high-level health career. Students apply in their junior year of high school.
