Mark Lundy, the widower of late USF Health physician Dr. Marion Ridley, gave the University of South Florida $1 million to enhance training and provide new equipment for medical school students, according to the Tampa Bay Business Journal.
The funding will benefit residents in the otolaryngology program within USF’s Morsani College of Medicine for use to improve training experiences and purchase new specialized equipment.
The donation follows another $1.8 million gift last year and a $3.2 million grant this year to fund Alzheimer’s detection research. Also last year, the school received $1 million to expand its public health laboratory workforce.
