NOSM U receives matched endowment to support medical students


NOSM University has received a $500K gift from the Marcel and Frances Labelle Foundation, which will be matched by the FDC Foundation to create a $1M endowment for medical students. The funds will be used to support three undergraduate medical students from northeastern Ontario communities such as Hearst, Kapuskasing, Timmins, and Cochrane. “We are so grateful to the Marcel and Frances Labelle Foundation for their continued vision, generosity and support,” said NOSM U President Dr Sarita Verma. “Truly, they are investing in a healthier future for all Northern Ontarians.”
