The June 1976 Alumni of the Ghana Medical School has donated Mannequins valued at $6,500 to the Stimulation Center of the Ghana Medical School at a ceremony at Korle-Bu on Wednesday the 24th of March.
This is to enhance Clinical Teaching of the Medical Students even more so critical with the advent of Covid. The Mannequins covered the gamut of Medical Specialties; Cardiovascular, Breast, Pediatric, Neonatal, and Gynecology.
The presentation was done on behalf of the Class by Drs Henrietta Asare, Ken Ofosu Barko, Paul Enin and Samuel Gyepi Atee. Speaking at the Ceremony, Dr. Asare said She was indeed proud that her Classmates at Home and in the Diaspora rose to the occasion when she made the pitch to them for the need.
She said her Class was committed to the progress of the school indicating that on the 40th Anniversary of their completing the Medical School, they donated $10,000 as seed money to establish an Endowment Fund for the School.
She commended all the Classmates who donated to make the Project possible as well as the Team that coordinated the efforts; Drs. Etse Dagadu (Diaspora President) Addo A. O, Ken Ofosu Barko (Cordinators), and Tuffuor Kwarteng (Local President)
