Welcome to Trinity Med Day 2013, Home of all the latest Updates on Med Day events.

 Trinity Med Day is a charitable organisation run by Trinity 4th year medical students, which hosts an annual one day fundraising event to raise money for worthy healthcare projects.  Since its foundation in 2002, Trinity Med Day has raised over 500,000 euro for vital local health services and has become an important day in the calendar of the School of Medicine;  getting staff, students and consultants alike involved in the fundraising efforts.

 This year, on Friday the 1st of November, over 500 medical students will take to the streets of Dublin to collect money for Targeted Lung Cancer Treatment in St Jamesí Hospital and Falls Assessment for the Elderly AMNCH, Tallaght. This year is the 12th year of Med Day and we also hope to raise money through our traditional methods of street collection, on campus activities, talent show and raffle.

Targeted Cancer Therapy

Annually, lung cancer accounts for more deaths worldwide than any other form of cancer. Traditional chemotherapy provides limited treatment for late stage lung cancer. The generation of highly effective targeted-therapies shows potential to fill this gap in treatment.

 

Falls in the Elderly

Falls in older persons are a major cause of ill-health; they reduce quality of life and are often the primary reason for institutionalisation, and cause death.Establishing the cause of falls would be hugely beneficial both for patients and the Irish health system.
