Dana-Farber Fundraiser Protested By Medical Students
The recent travel ban of President Donald Trump has sparked protests. One of those protests is being made by medical students. The Dana-Farber fundraiser is being protested by medical students.
The protesters gathered at Harvard Medical School's Gordon Hall to protest the coming Dana-Farber fundraiser. The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute is a medical school teaching hospital. The protesters want the fundraiser to be relocated elsewhere and not be held at Mar-a-Lago.
Dana-Faber has said that it will keep to the February 18 venue. However, it also said that it will avoid any controversial venues in the future. At the protest, patients and doctors have spoken about their immigrant background and how the travel ban has affected the medical community.
Celeste Royal is a doctor from Dorchester and one of those who attended the protest. She has said that she and others in the protest are speaking out against the discriminatory nature of Trump's Presidential order. Senan Ebrahim, an M.D., Ph.D. student has said that patients abroad cannot seek medical treatment in the US because of the order.
Dana-Farber administrators have acknowledged the protesters' concerns but have also said that cancelling the event might be seen as a political statement, according to The Harvard Crimson. Dana-Farber President Laurie H. Glimcher and Broad of Trustees Chairman Joshua Bekenstein have said that the decision to continue the fundraiser at the Mar-a-Lago should not be seen as an endorsement of a political figure or position.
Student organizer Colleen M. Farrell has said that they will continue to stand up for all the people in the community who are affected by the travel ban issue. So far the protest has also been able to gather 2,500 signatures about the issue, as CBS Boston reports.
Mar-a-Lago is a resort owned by President Donald Trump. Protest organizers want the fundraiser to be moved to another venue because of the issue surrounding President Trump's travel ban. Organizers say that protests will continue before the event.
President Trump's travel ban remains to be controversial. The Dana-Farber fundraiser which will be held in one of his resorts is being protested by medical students. A study has also found that learning math is much better with movements.
