University of Massachusetts President Robert Caret spoke about the impact of UMass Medical School on the central Massachusetts economy during the The Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce breakfast this morning.

Several hundred area business leaders listened on as President Caret discussed how UMass Medical School is playing a major role in the economy of central Massachusetts by creating jobs, attracting industries and developing a highly skilled workforce in the crucial areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, also known as STEM.
