SGUSOM '12 Alum Dr. Katrina Godderz Hosts a Dynamic Grand Round!

Posted By Tonya Duncan-Phillip (Duncan), Saturday, October 24, 2015

Last Friday saw the hosting of a dynamic and informative Grand Round presentation by SGUSOM 2012 Alum Dr. Katrina Godderz.  An Emergency Medicine Physician based in Miami, Dr. Godderz spent over an hour describing her SGU experience, and her career path to her current position. Dr. Godderz' enthusiasm for her chosen field and her pride in SGU were palpable.  As Dr. Frances McGill, who attended the session, put it " they'll all want to be emergency doctors!" 


Dr. Godderz and her guest Ms. Audrey Long spent a week vacationing in Grenada, revisiting old haunts. In addition to her Grand Round presentation, Dr. Godderz also held a student talk with the Emergency Medicine Club.  While a student, Dr. Godderz was actively involved with several student organizations including IEA and AMSA.


In her advice to the students, she emphasized that "happy people make happy doctors. Take time for yourself, in order to make time for your studies and your patients."


Thank you Dr. Godderz for spending the evening with us - we look forward to your next visit!

For the second time this year, Grenadians benefited from the expertise of Dr. Philip Fiore, a Friend of SGU, who specializes in Ophthalmology.


Dr. Fiore, who has been facilitating similar clinics in Grenada over the past three (3) years was initially roped in by Alumnus Dr. Orazio Giliberti, SGUSOM '82, who leads the Alumni team conducting Ophthalmology missions on island.  


Dr. Fiore and a medical technician were recently in Grenada over the period October 5 - 9, 2015 during which time he reviewed 115 cases.  According to Brendon La Grenade, Director of Medical Specialties Programs here at SGU, he was also able to conduct 7 extra-cap cataract surgeries, out of a planned 16 procedures, using manual extraction as there was an equipment malfunction.


Dr. Fiore is expected to conduct another clinic in late November 2015.


Alumni Relations extends a hearty 'thank you' to Dr. Fiore and his team, and we look forward to his next visit!

Over the period of September 24 - Oct 3, 2015, Dr. Lanzieri and his Cardiology Team of 5 were able to complete their 2nd Interventional Cardiology Clinic in Grenada.


A dedicated alumnus, Dr. Lanzieri has been working along with fellow alumnus Dr. Ralph Cardamone, SGUSOM '82, to establish an efficient and much needed Adult Cardiology Clinic in Grenada since 2000.


According to Brendon La Grenade, Director of Medical Specialties Programs at SGU, the Interventional Cardiology Clinic, first held in February of this year, brings to fruition another phase of the cardiology program.  During this second visit, Dr. Lanzieri and team were able to screen 27 local patients leading to the performance of 9 coronary angiograms, 3 angioplasties and 3 pacemaker implants.


We congratulate Dr. Lanzieri and his team on the successful realization of this goal!

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, March 25, 2015

Dr. Kenneth Stark, Charter Class Alumnus, was at True Blue Campus this past February 2015. Dr. Stark is one of the growing number of alumni who has a child currently enrolled at SGU. Yaye Knights! Dr. Stark was also a nominee for Treasurer in the recent SOMAA elections.


On this last visit, Dr. Stark combined volunteerism with his vacation, as he was able to conduct a Rheumatology workshop for the University Health Services (UHS) Clinicians, and attend to some cases.  In addition to this, he had meetings with the Internal Medicine Director (Alumnus Dr. Dolland Noel) and the Director of University Health Services, Dr. Katherine Yearwood, as it relates to his specialty, Rheumatology.

We look forward to meeting Dr. Stark on his next visit to Grenada!
