The Maternal and Child Health Care Project between Drexel University and Makerere University School of Health in Kampala, Uganda continues to grow. A team recently returned from a multi-week mission that addressed the maternal and infant mortality rate in the East African country, where 16 mothers die in childbirth every day. Thanks to continued support from Rotary International and Rotary clubs in both Pennsylvania and Uganda, this unique partnership has flourished.


The Department of Emergency Medicine is marking a major milestone in a unique partnership with the United States Air Force. They are celebrating the ten year anniversary of a program that helps provide paramedic training for elite Air Force Pararescue candidates.


Medical students at Drexel University are required to do some type of meaningful community service as part of the College of Medicine’s first-year curriculum. The majority of students continue to volunteer for community service projects above and beyond their first-year requirements, with many opting to volunteer at one of the college’s student-run Health Outreach Project (HOP) clinics.


The Golden Apple Awards recognize excellence in teaching and outstanding service to the students of Drexel University College of Medicine. Students and nominees recently gathered together at the Queen Lane Campus for the 20th Annual Golden Apple Teaching Awards Ceremony during which the coveted gold statues were handed out.


The Centers for Disease Control confirms there are 300,000 new cases of Lyme disease diagnosed every year in the United States. In the continental US, Pennsylvania is usually ranked as being first or second in the nation with the most cases. In 2014, the State Senate unanimously passed legislation intended to execute prevention, education and surveillance strategies for Lyme and other tick-borne diseases. In light of this legislation, Drexel University College of Medicine is teaming up with the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS), and the PA Lyme Resource Network (PALRN) to host a two-day conference. This conference brings together physicians and researchers to discuss current and future treatment protocols and investigational research.
