M4M = Mentoring for Medicine The Elizabeth Program
Preparing students to flourish in medical careers serving those in greatest need is the program’s purpose. Flourishing means a life well-lived and a career delivered with Heart, Brains, and Character.
Heart to serve as their purpose
Brains to adapt to change
Character to be resilient.
It is not enough to be smart and hardworking; many such professionals are burning out and derailing their careers and their lives. *Thanks to Dr. Robert Pearl, former medical director for Kaiser Permanente for the "heart, brain, and character" concept - from his book: ?Mistreated
Elizabeth Program founder Marty McCarthy shared that “Mentoring for Medicine (M4M) is a new program designed to raise up from our own community our future doctors. We do this by recruiting and training civic leaders to be mentors to young students seeking a medical career. Knowing that mentors are considered to be the greatest source of strength for future leaders, we hope you will consider coming to an introductory session to learn more.”
In partnership with M4M, Lake Lure Classical Academy (LLCA) students will take part in a mentorship program that will enable them to learn more about their passion for the medical field. LLCA School Director Barbara Cohen reports that “students who have been identified for this program plan to attend a four-year university program that will prepare them for medical school. Being a part of this mentorship program will provide LLCA students with a foundation for their future careers.”
The Lake Lure community is coming together to support the M4M Program by identifying individuals who are willing to serve as mentors for students at the Lake Lure Classical Academy. If you are interested in learning more about this fulfilling opportunity, please join us for a learning session about the program.
