Radiology Students, Staff Support Charity Walk

Several students and faculty members from the Kent State Salem radiology program participated in the recent Panerathon, a 10 K/2 mile walk/run in Youngstown to raise money for the Joanie Abdu Comprehensive Breast Care Center.

All proceeds from the event support the Joanie’s Promise Fund at the Humility of Mary Health Partners Foundation. Joanie’s Promise ensures that every woman in the Mahoning Valley is “aware of, able to get to, and is welcome” at the JACBCC. Breast screening expenses are covered for any woman who qualifies financially and the fund also provides transportation if needed.

This year’s event was held Aug. 24 at the Covelli Centre. Representing the Salem Campus were students Joe Nemcik, Sarah Reich, Misty Williamson, Erica Kotel, Lisa Jurus, Krista Paolucci, Angela Himes (and daughter), Candice Dickson and Jessica Noble (and sons).

Participating radiology faculty members included Sheri McCormick, Kelly Dragomir, Jan Gibson and Margie Iagulli, along with Mary Lou Ferranto from
the nursing program.
