In honor of Dr. Ranita Donald’s many years of service to MCG as Anesthesia Clerkship Director and mentor to dozens of medical students, we are working toward an official Ranita Donald fund.

This fund will support travel and other educational needs of medical students in the Anesthesia Clerkship Program to present research on cardiovascular health. We will need $4500 for the fund to be created. Until then, you can donate via the MCG Foundation:
