Social action / Philanthropy Committee

Our residents are actively involved in community outreach projects with the department’s full support.

After Robin Soboleweski was awarded the 2012-2013 Goldberg-Reeder Resident Travel Grant, she held independent fundraisers to raise $18,500 to buy an Ultrasound machine for Cape Verde, Africa. She traveled to Cape Verde with Dr. Angabeen Khan and Dr. Linda Durhan to donate the Ultrasound machine and to train local physicians.

Robin was selected to present at the 2013 RAD-AID Conference on International Radiology for Developing Countries at Johns Hopkins.
