The Max Baker Resource Center (MBRC)


The MBRC is an approved 501(c)(3) entity as part of the UMass Medical Center Foundation.

“My son can’t be here himself, learning what students here are learning, but he can be here in spirit and the resource center named in his memory can help them learn.”

The Max Baker Resource Center was launched by members of the UMMS Student Body Committee with significant support from James Baker, MD, MPH.

The Resource Center provides food, sundries, personal items, and other necessities available to any trainee at the institution, 24 hours a day at no cost, and with no questions asked. It is supported by donations from the community.

Students can leave donations within the center at any time; faculty and staff are asked to send an email to to coordinate donations.
