MUN medical school launches $5M fundraising campaign

August 3, 2016

Memorial University’s Faculty of Medicine hopes to raise $5M in a new campaign called Building a Healthy Tomorrow. The fundraising initiative seeks to boost financial support for students, enable the purchase of new training equipment for the Clinical Learning and Simulation Centre, and broaden medical research in areas pertinent to Newfoundland and Labrador. “There are so many future physicians and researchers out there just like me, but they don’t have the means to attend medical school,” explained MUN student Desmond Whalen. “Like me, they want to give back to our province. This campaign will help them to accomplish that.” The medical school has reportedly already raised more than $3.2M from individuals, corporations, and foundations. The Telegram | MUN | CBC
