Rottman Family Fund Commits $100,000 to Med Students Conducting Research in Limited Resource Countries

Dr. Fritz (faculty emeritus and member of the Dean's Visiting Committee) and Carol Rottman, through their Rottman Family Fund, have established a fund to support Case Western Reserve medical students who are interested in travelling to Africa (or other resource-limited countries) to conduct research and/or aid in treatment of emerging diseases such as HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria. Preference will be given to students who have incorporated work in a resource-limited country into their senior thesis. The Rottmans, who frequently travel to Africa and experience first-hand the significant health care needs of the area and have an interest in supporting the medical school, encourage medical students to become involved in research, evaluation and/or management of diseases in resource-limited countries so they can experience the challenges and opportunities that such work offers, and encourage them to consider their eventual roles in the global fight against infectious diseases.
