Marcia used her talents to aid the Grants team in preparing and researching for proposals. Josh Korn, CURE Director of Grants, Acquisitions, and Management, said, “Marcia’s professional experience as a healthcare practitioner, as well as her academic background in global health, and her passion for serving the underprivileged and sharing God’s love make her ideally suited to contribute to CURE’s mission. As a volunteer, she has been instrumental in helping the grants team as we prepare proposals and reports to donors, especially through her research on topics such as disability access/inclusion, global surgery, and community-based rehabilitation. We are very thankful for Marcia’s tireless efforts and grateful to have her on our team!”
