UMass Medical School and UMass Memorial Health Care celebrating primary care throughout October

September 27, 2013

Each year, National Primary Care Week highlights the importance of primary care for all, and raises awareness of the need for more primary care practitioners. 

The officially designated National Primary Care Week takes place this year from October 7 to 14, but at the academic health sciences center that houses one of the top 10 medical schools for primary care training nationally, one week just isn’t enough to do justice to its commitment to primary care training and care.

That is why UMass Medical School and UMass Memorial Health Care are celebrating for the entire month of October. See the full calendar of events below, and contact the Center for the Advancement of Primary Care at 774-442-7059 or capc@umassmemorial.org for further information.
