'The Alliance' in focus - Meet Serena MooreFifty-five members of the UNMC High School Alliance are among the students taking classes at UNMC.
The alliance students come from high schools around the Omaha area and take college-level classes at UNMC to prepare for health careers. Once each month, UNMC Today will profile an alliance student to let us get to know more about these young learners.
Today we meet Serena Moore, a junior at Omaha Central High School.
