Ultimate Medical Academy is serious about education. We’re serious about healthcare. We’re serious about careers. And we’re serious about having fun. That includes helping others and giving back to our community.
Making a positive impact in peoples’ lives is what UMA is all about. That includes proudly supporting a number of nonprofit organizations in our community through volunteer work, donations, services, scholarships and monetary contributions.
Community Spotlight: Pack-A-Snack – Many Tampa Bay area children participate in the school lunch program but lack access to nutritional meals on the weekend, so UMA participates in the Pack-A-Snack program. This nonprofit program provides nutritional snacks for children to take home on the weekends, including fresh produce. UMA currently supports four local schools through this program:
- Woodlawn Elementary
- Fairmont Elementary
- Melrose Elementary
- Campbell Park Elementary
