RUSM Donates $100,000 EC to Dominica Red Cross Society

September 14, 2015

The leadership of DeVry Medical International and Ross University School of Medicine (RUSM) have been partnering closely with the local government and authorities in Dominica on several aspects of the relief efforts in the aftermath of Tropical Storm Erika. On Tuesday, September 8, RUSM’s Dean and Chancellor Joseph A. Flaherty, MD, presented a donation of $100,000 EC ($37,037) to the Dominica Red Cross Society.

“All of us at RUSM and DeVry [Education Group] are moved by the losses suffered by the country and we are equally moved by the indomitable spirit of the people,” said Dr. Flaherty. “We know that Dominica is on the road to recovery, with the help of agencies like the Red Cross, well-known everywhere as a good and reliable organization that delivers services to people in need.” 

The president of the Dominica Red Cross Society, Philip White, accepted the check on behalf of the organization’s director general, board members, volunteers, and the people of Dominica. “At this point in time I think you have demonstrated your commitment to Dominica,” Mr. White said. “I want to say a big thank you to Ross for coming on board with the Red Cross with this timely gesture. This will go a long way in helping to alleviate the plight that most of our communities have suffered.”
