Campus Candid

Thirty-five members of the Society of Pre-Health Professionals student organization along with staff and an alumna volunteered a total of 925 hours with Remote Area Medical (RAM) March 31-April 2 in Ashtabula, OH. With student commitment to our values of magis and service with justice and love, $293,845 in medical, dental and vision healthcare services were provided to 543 patients.

Beyond the numbers, our student volunteers truly accompanied patients throughout the clinic as translators, runners and more. They demonstrated being “people for and with others” in the relationships they built with the patients and each other throughout the clinic. This was in addition to the $1.7 million in services provided in previous Ashtabula RAM clinics where Canisius students have participated since they first started in 2018.

An advocate for equity in education, Lilly mentored, advised and guided thousands of students over the course of her career, many of whom were the first in their families to attend college. As a result of her dedication, knowledge, and expertise, countless students became leaders in their chosen professions and in their communities.
