USD med student concert to benefit juvenile diabetes research
Medical students organize the benefit and perform vocal and instrumental musical pieces. The concert will be held Saturday, March 20, at 7:30 p.m. in Farber Hall on USD’s Vermillion campus.
“We had such great success with our inaugural concert that we definitely knew we wanted to make it an annual tradition,” said Mary Baker, a second-year medical student.
The inaugural concert raised $2,500 for a scholarship fund created in honor of the late Timothy Clark, Ph.D., who was a basic biomedical sciences professor at USD.
Tickets are $8 each or two for $15. They are available from medical students. Goodwill donations also are welcome. Checks can be made out to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. For more information, contact Baker at email@example.com.
The mission of JDRF is to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research. Since its founding in 1970 by parents of children with type 1 diabetes, JDRF has awarded more than $1.4 billion to diabetes research.
