Welcome to Trinity Med Day 2012, 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 2nd of November, over 500 medical students will take to the streets of Dublin to collect money for The Tuberculosis Service St Jamesí Hospital and The Chronic Kidney Disease Unit AMNCH, Tallaght. As this year marks the 11th anniversary of Med Day, we also hope to raise money not only through our traditional methods of street collection, on campus activities, talent show and raffle; we also plan to have a gala ball to raise extra funds and mark the occasion.
TB is a relatively common condition in Ireland, with 427 cases of all strains identified in 2010, the latest full-year figures available, down from roughly 7,000 a year when it was the scourge of the country during the 1950s.
