Medical Student Oncology Society Raises Funds to Support Cancer Center

February 06, 2014

The Ross University School of Medicine (RUSM) Oncology Society, one of the more than 40 student groups and organizations on campus, has been raising funds for a portable ultrasound device, which is an essential diagnostic tool for the new cancer center at Princess Margaret Hospital in Dominica. RUSM faculty member, Dr. Kamalendu Malaker, the group’s advisor, was instrumental in developing the cancer center.

The group was able to raise $25,000 EC ($9,259 US) last semester, with the help of RUSM students, spouses and faculty. They hope to continue this project and raise funds to cover the cost of chemotherapy for patients in need.

“This is another great example of how the commitment and determination of our students can make a difference in the community of Dominica,” said Dr. Stanley White, associate dean of the Center for Teaching and Learning. “All involved deserve our congratulations and admiration.”
