I am sure none of us had any concept of the effect a small RNA virus could have on our lives. As physicians, we have experienced some of the most life-changing effects of COVID-19 as any group in America. Through these uncertain times, I have been both scared but also emboldened to have been given an opportunity to make a difference in my community and deliver essential health care. It’s what we were all trained to do at the Medical College of Georgia. Read more »
Dr. Joseph J. Burch
Class of 1985
President, MCG Alumni Association
A few months back you heard from 1995 MCG graduate Dr. Alan Smith about the MCG Alumni Association’s great initiative to purchase each of our first-year students their first stethoscope.
We received a great response from many MCG alumni but wanted to follow up with you to see if we can also have your support for our students. We all know that a stethoscope is an icon of our profession that remains a mainstay in practice. These stethoscopes carry the additional significance of bearing the seal of your also iconic medical school and its legacy of educating outstanding physicians.
I hope you will choose to support the next generation of MCG graduates and great physicians through this initiative.
For $250, you can fund one stethoscope for one student or you can support more students by increasing your gift. Some MCG alums have contributed $1,000 to benefit four medical students, which is really outstanding.
More information about this program, and how you can make a gift, can be found at mcgfoundation.org/stethoscope. If you have questions or would prefer to mail your check, please contact Ralph Alee at 706-721-7343.
Thank you for your support of your medical school.
