11 CIR Members to Travel the World Doing Relief Work

After six outstanding years of supporting medical volunteer relief work in Haiti, the CIR Policy & Education Initiative has expanded its work to a new program: the Global Medical Volunteer Scholarship program (GMVS).

In its inaugural year, the GMVS program received 41 applications from an incredibly competitive group of residents. The program received generous funding from the Newmark Grubb Knight Frank and the Gural Family, allowing 11 applicants to receive scholarships. Recipients will be doing medical volunteer work in places all over the world including Ethiopia, Peru, Mexico, and Nicaragua to name a few. Congratulations to the following individuals:
