ITW Volunteer Ginger Merry, MD. Featured in ACRIVS Spring 2012 Newsletter

The ACRIVS (American College of Radiology International Volunteer Services) has featured one of ITW’s own this month. Ginger Merry is a 2011 recipient of the Goldberg-Reeder Travel Grant; with that funding she was able to travel to Uganda in October 2011 to begin a feasibility and pilot study for a long-term international outreach project that focuses on breast cancer awareness and detection. Dr. Merry says of her experience, “Developing and working on this project has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my career thus far. It has been exciting to see the idea come to fruition and to gain the trust and support of my colleagues in Uganda to move the project forward.”

Dr. Merry is pictured here with Sister Angela Njeri, a nurse/midwife working in partnership with ITW.
