Dr. Rowena Dolor's Red Cross Story
"Giving back is ingrained in my DNA. I grew up in a family that would regularly give back to nonprofit organizations by volunteering or helping to raise funds to continue their humanitarian mission."
Dr. Rowena Dolor, Professor in Medicine at Duke University Medical Center, has been a Tiffany Circle member since 2015, a network of philanthropic women inspired by the legacy of our founder Clara Barton.
"As a physician, the Red Cross programs that educate people on how to respond to common health problems are closest to my heart. I co-hosted a lunch and learn on Citizen CPR; I participated in a Q&A session to help raise funds for the American Rare Blood donor program; and I am a huge fan of the Measles & Rubella initiative to vaccinate children in developing countries."
Her advice on how to get started with giving back in your community? "Take the time to understand an organization – its mission and activities – to see if those items fit with your personal or family values. Then try volunteering to see how the funding is used to improve the lives of others, prior to making a financial commitment."
