Paediatric Brain Tumour Awareness (PBTA)
The vision of PBTA is to raise awareness, support patients and their families, and establish funding to further pediatric brain tumour awareness in Singapore.
PBTA shows patients that society cares about their struggles and raises awareness on the different resources and support groups available. PBTA also aims to provide a safe environment for patients and loved ones to address their fears and concerns.
Founded in 2010, Project DOVE (Duke-NUS Overseas Volunteering Expedition) is an annual student-led initiative that aims to provide medical help to underprivileged communities overseas and improve students' clinical skills by training as volunteer doctors. Through serving and building relationships with the local community, students learned the value of public health approaches in creating sustainable change. They also gained clinical experiences through observing various patient diseases.
At Duke-NUS, we combine real-world experiences into the curriculum, thus helping our students to develop leadership skills (Duke TODAY, Oct 21 2013).
Project Dove aims to provide medical help to underprivileged communities overseas, and to expose our students to lead and manage effectively in challenging settings thus developing and improving their leadership and clinical skills.
