See Where Rochester Can Take You: Alumni Stories
A Rochester education prepares you to pursue your passions. Our alumni have gone on to practice in many areas of medicine and still focus on projects related to their personal interests.
Nana Afoh-Manin '08M (MD), Joanne Moreau '07M (MD) and Briana DeCuir '03, '07M (MD), medical school classmates, just launched myCovidMD - a new initiative to help under-resourced communities during the pandemic. The initiative offers pop-up, drive-through COVID-19 testing sites along with follow up tele-health medical service for those who need them most through a convenient mobile app.
To date, the group has held three pop-up, drive-through testing events in Los Angeles, testing approximately 300 people in the process. In the coming weeks, the group will ramp up to host additional testing pop-up drive-thru events in Los Angeles, California, as well as Queens, New York, and Detroit, Michigan, with more to come.
“It’s heartening to see so many people step up to do the right thing for someone else,” says Dr. Afoh-Manin. “We would love for URMC students and alumni to join us as volunteers and donors, and additional information can be found at covidmd.org.”
