New issue of RadyUM magazine marks medical college anniversary

March 1, 2024 — 

The cover story of the new issue of RadyUM magazine focuses on the Max Rady College of Medicine’s celebration of a milestone: its 140th anniversary.

Dr. Tito Daodu, a UM medical alum and pediatric surgeon, is featured on the cover as the emcee of last fall’s 140th anniversary gala, attended by 400 supporters of the medical college. A UM fund established to mark the anniversary has raised $96,000 in support of bursaries for medical and graduate students.

The twice-yearly magazine, published in print and online, brings you the latest news and student, faculty and alumni accomplishments from the five colleges of the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences: the Dr. Gerald Niznick College of Dentistry, Max Rady College of Medicine, College of Nursing, College of Pharmacy and College of Rehabilitation Sciences.

Rady researchers profiled in the Winter 2023/24 issue include Dr. Sherif Eltonsy, an assistant professor of pharmacy who studies data on prescription drug use during pregnancy; Dr. Mandy Archibald, an assistant professor of nursing who is passionate about arts-based health research; and Margaret Hart, Ininiw (Cree) scholar in the College of Rehabilitation Sciences, who has researched the Indigenization of post-secondary curricula by Indigenous scholars.

Rady alumni showcased in this issue include Dr. Hoda Hosseini, a periodontist who feels compelled to give back to her profession; Peri Venkatesh, a master’s alum in nursing who became an educator with a special interest in men’s health; Cenzina Caligiuri, a pharmacy alum whose work focuses on pharmacy services in hospitals; and Marnie Courage, an occupational therapy alum who is dedicated to improving the quality of life of people with disabilities.    

Other features highlight the Dr. Gerald Niznick College of Dentistry’s $10-million fundraising campaign to fully equip its future dental clinics, planned for a new building on Bannatyne campus; the appointment of the first endowed chair based in the College of Rehabilitation Sciences; and the wisdom shared by champions for Indigenous health and social justice at an event centred on cultural safety in Indigenous health.
