On Oct. 23, volunteers from the USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center gathered to package essential pharmaceutical and medical supplies to donate to the University of Puerto Rico (UPR) Medical Center, which is still recovering from the devastating effects of Hurricane Maria.

The donation was coordinated by Larissa Rodriguez, MD, associate provost for faculty and student initiatives in health and STEM and professor of urology at the Keck School of Medicine of USC, and Mariana Stern, PhD, professor of research preventive medicine and urology, to assist a colleague at UPR Medical Center. Organizers also included Krist Azizian, PharmD, chief pharmacy officer of Keck Medicine of USC.

Those looking to contribute to relief efforts in Puerto Rico and elsewhere can visit one of the donation sites recommended by USC Student Affairs.
