Goldberg-Reeder Resident Travel Grant 2012-2013

Ultrasound for West Africa

Robin Sobolewski, Class of 2013

Robin was recently awarded this grant to assist her trip to Centro de Saude dos Mosteiros, Cape Verde.  The Goldberg-Reeder Resident Travel Grant was established in 2008 to support residents seeking to provide a month’s worth of medical service in a developing country. The program was named after Barry Goldberg, M.D. and Maurice “Mo” Reeder, M.D., two individuals who have dedicated their life’s work not only to advancing medical science in radiology, but to disseminating knowledge, equipment, materials and goodwill to developing countries throughout the world. Their tireless dedication to improve medical care in developing countries has been an inspiration to many in radiology and has saved countless lives abroad.
