About Us

BBMTA of Cornell University is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving underrepresented students interested in pursuing health-related careers. The organization provides underrepresented students with a community and resources to succeed as pre-health undergraduate students. BBMTA hosts general body meetings where students obtain academic support, professional development skills and awareness of health-related issues. Through our annual health career conference composed of panels and workshops, we expose students to a range of health professionals and give students the opportunity to engage with those already established in the medical field. BBMTA extends its mission into the Ithaca community beyond Cornell through commitment to various service projects and youth mentorship.

This Organization is a Registered Student Organization of Cornell University.
