SUBJECT: Memorial University's Faculty of Medicine launches report to the community

DATE: Nov. 19

The Faculty of Medicine's Reaching Out to the Community in 2002-03, will be officially launched on Friday, Nov. 21, during the annual general meeting of the Newfoundland and Labrador Health Boards Association in St. John's.

"Reaching Out to the Community in 2002-03 is more than an annual report," said Dr. Ian Bowmer, dean of medicine at Memorial University. "We have highlighted activities that emphasize our role in providing information, education and consultation to the whole community of Newfoundland and Labrador, from traveling clinics to treat hemophilia and HIV/AIDS to making our professional skills and expertise available to communities, organizations, government and industry to design and conduct research in a variety of fields. Outreach and social responsibility are a key part of the mission of Memorial's Faculty of Medicine, and this report underlines our continuing effort and success in meeting many needs."
