Share Article

Medical Careers Institute, the School of Health Science at ECPI College of Technology, once again is participating in a Muscular Dystrophy Association Shamrock Sales Event. The event, which kicked off February 14th will run through March 17, 2008, includes a contest where Shamrocks are sold and then counted as "votes" towards a pie in the face for unlucky faculty. Medical Careers Institute's Academic Coordinator of Clinical Education at the Newport News campus, Dawn Gaimaro, is once again leading the program this year. All of the funds raised will be used to serve over 900 families in the Hampton Roads area that the Muscular Dystrophy Association serves.
