In October 2014 The Pre-Health Society established "Cadets for a Cure." We worked to raise cancer awareness and to raise funds for Patient Support Services at Hollings Cancer Center through ribbon and wrist band sales. Cadet Matt Scalise was the founder of this campaign. We raised more than $1,000. A check was presented to Kiki Cooper of MUSC's Giving Office on Dec. 5, 2014.
In September 2014, a panel of distinguished alumni hosted "Meet the Experts" where students learned about various medical and dental specialties.
In February 2014, The Pre-Health Society Hosted a panel of alumni who shared the "Secrets of their Success" with students at The Citadel.
On October 24, 2012 The Pre-Health Society and BioCid co-hosted a Low Country Shrimp Boil Fundraiser that raised $650 to support Wounded Nature (an organization that employs veterans to clean up beaches and increase environmental awareness). Students worked all day selling tickets, shopping, chopping, cooking, serving, and cleaning up; making the event a huge success.
