Outreach and Development
– ICEC has contacted the Carter Foundation. Even though cancer is not among the projects they support, we are aiming to discuss with them how the sustainability of the ICEC model could benefit their programs including the need for infectious disease experts as a component of cancer care. Our Outreach and Development group is working on applications for funds from foundations. We are very much open to your suggestions, contacts, support and assistance.
– The first informational reception, Partnering to Transform Global Cancer Care was held on June 1 with the generous support from the Department of Radiation Oncology at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre and the Washington, DC office of Baker and McKenzie, LLP. Baker & McKenzie is the largest international law firm in the world, with lawyers in 77 offices across 47 countries. ICEC appreciates their generosity and interest in our mission. The individuals who spoke at the reception demonstrated the unique breadth and remarkable interest in the mission of ICEC.
– The Ellen Lewis Stovall Early Career Leaders Award was given to Danielle Rodin, Mac Longo, Surbhi Grover, Tracy Sherertz and Mira Shah. Both an individual stipend and a group award was provided with the funds to be used at their discretion.
– The Dr. Rodney R. Million Fund for Innovation in Clinical Care has been established by a generous contribution from the Million family to support activities in Africa. This new fund was announced at the June 1 reception. Lynn Million, MD, an ICEC Expert in pediatric radiation oncology will be spending a sabbatical in Africa this summer to help ICEC assess needs and develop programs. ICEC is honored to promote the Million Legacy and support interested trainees or health care providers sustain careers and other related activities in global health and service to these struggling countries and other areas.
