WSU Boonshoft School of Medicine Phi Rho Sigma Medical Society to host a Day of Caring 2013 pancake brunch on Feb. 24

DAYTON—Medical students from the Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine Phi Rho Sigma Medical Society are hosting a Day of Caring 2013 brunch site in White Hall from 9 a.m. to noon on Sunday, Feb. 24, on the WSU campus.

The cost is $6 per person. All of the proceeds from the pancake breakfast will be donated to Greene County food and housing coalitions.

Day of Caring 365, a nonprofit local organization, supports the homeless and the hungry. The organization coordinates with schools, businesses, churches and cultural groups to host a regional pancake brunch on the last Sunday in February.

This year, medical students from the WSU Boonshoft School of Medicine Alpha Upsilon Chapter of Phi Rho Sigma, a national social and community service organization, wanted to help the hungry and homeless of the greater Dayton area by hosting a Day of Caring brunch site. 

“The profession of medicine is rooted in service,” said Ralla Shrit, a second-year medical student and president of the WSU chapter of Phi Rho Sigma. “We are thrilled to serve as a host site for the Day of Caring 2013 brunch. In today’s economy, many people rely on social programs for their basic needs.”

The event is open to the public. To reserve tickets, contact Shrit at shrit.2@wright.edu.
