Anesthesiology Students Lend a Hand to Homeless

Anesthesiology program director, Dr. Tony Umadhay, poses with Corey Gabric, Jennifer Anderson, Kimberly Hands, Mariya Kogan, and Tanika Pardo as they helped serve meals to homeless people as part of a community outreach program.

Graduate students Corey Gabric (class of 2013), Jennifer Anderson, Kimberly Hands, Mariya Kogan and Tanika Pardo (class of 2012) helped raise money and serve meals for the homeless in the Breaking Bread, Breaking Barriers community outreach program.

“The student’s participation really serves as a testament to Barry University’s core commitments of social justice and collaborative service,” said anesthesiology program director, Dr. Tony Umadhay, who also joined the students on Sunday, Nov. 13.

Breaking Bread, Breaking Barriers provide financial support for the food services program at the Broward Partnership for the Homeless Inc. The organization is committed to reducing homelessness by promoting independence and self-worth through advocacy, housing and comprehensive services. This project also raises awareness to the increasing problem of homelessness in Broward County.

The anesthesiology students raised $500 to sponsor lunch for 200 men, women, and children at the Broward Partnership for the Homeless. The group also volunteered to prepare and serve lunch. Umadhay explained that for these homeless men and women, the simple act of finding a meal can be insurmountable. For many families and individuals, a communal meal serves as a source of healing and connecting with others.
