Our visit to Maine Medical Center’s Research Institute

Sunday, May 21st, 2017

Earlier this month, a group of Passages students visited Maine Med’s Research Institute in Scarborough, where they met with Dr. Lucy Liaw and Dr. Michaela Reagan. Students toured labs and learned about the cancer and cardiovascular research being conducted by Dr. Liaw and Dr. Reagan. Students learned about the day-to-day life of a scientist, as well as the education and experience necessary to pursue a career in the sciences. Thank you to Doctors Liaw and Reagan for the tour and the inspiration!

We are thrilled to be the recipients of the 2017 Heartwood Award from Tree Street Youth. The award was made in recognition of Wayfinder’s support of Tree Street’s students and staff.  Tree Street’s Executive Director Julia Sleeper said, “The heartwood section of the tree is the central core wood that begins the concentric circles as the tree grows and develops and is the first to give support and strength to the tree. You have been that support and strength at Tree Street for a long time and we know the successes we have accomplished could not have been possible without that support and guidance you have provided us over the years.”

We are honored to receive this award, which was presented at Tree Street’s I Am Tree event on April 27. Thank you Tree Street!
