Ross Med Supports Community Organizations in Dominica with Donations

June 06, 2014

Ross Med is committed to maintaining a close and caring partnership with the Commonwealth of Dominica, the campus’ host country, and its people, neighbors and friends. As part of the university’s involvement with the community, Ross Med is pleased to contribute a variety of resources to local groups.

This past year Ross Med has donated more than $24,000, as well as supplies and other assistance to organizations and institutions in the realms of education, sports, culture, and other endeavors. They include, for example: Paix Bouche, Colihaut, Canefield/Massacre and Bense primary schools; Dublanc Sports Club; Waitukubuli Dance Theatre Company; Carnival activities; Bureau of Gender Affairs; Nature Island Literary Festival & Book Fair; and many more.

In February, the Hon. Ian Douglas, chairperson of Carnival’s Northern Festival Committee, and Member of Parliament for the Portsmouth region, was presented with a check by Senior Associate Dean Wm. Lynn Weaver, MD, FACS. He applauded Ross Med for its contributions and noted that after more than 35 years, the university is no longer a guest, but rather a member of the community.
