Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science

RALLY was proud to work with Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science (CDU), a South L.A.-based university dedicated to transforming the lives of underserved communities through health professions education, biomedical research, and compassionate patient care. Through media outreach and strategic communications planning, RALLY helped to raise awareness around CDU’s educational programs, groundbreaking research, community-focused initiatives, and academic contributions to the field of medicine. RALLY also worked with CDU’s Office of Strategic Advancement to host an annual State of the University address. In a story of survival, newly appointed President Dr. David M. Carlisle outlined the recent successes of the university, including successful accreditation, a 60% increase in applicants, and a high percentage of graduates working in primary care.
