Access to information has become very crucial amidst the emergence and treatment of many diseases.

ICT therefore comes in handy in dealing with these situations.

The School of Medicine and Dentistry of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology 1991 year group (SMS-91) is therefore supporting their alma mater with computers and printers to support teaching and learning.

The SMS-91 is a group of 34 doctors who were part of 40 students admitted into the School of Medical Sciences in 1985 to meet seven other students.

Since technology made it possible to bring members of the group together, they have been discussing ways to assist the school.

The group was led by Prof. Jonathan Dakubo, a surgeon and lecturer at the University of Ghana Medical School and Dr. Worlali Nutakor, an Emergency Medicine specialist based in the US.

They presented 10 desktop computers and four heavy duty printers to the school.

They believe the gesture will go a long way to help curb challenges faced by the School.

“We are here today to present 10 desktop computers and four heavy duty printers to the school to help expand the ICT capacity of the school to reduce challenges that students face in accessing information,” Prof. Dakubo said.

He entreated other alumni groups to come to the school’s aid.

“While the school continues to make efforts at recruiting younger staff, it is our prayer that many more year groups will rise to the tasks by supporting our Alumni group,” he said.

The dean of the school, Prof. Daniel Ansong noted that the donation will replace obsolete equipment in critical sections of the school.

“These equipment will go to special places in the school. These are the students’ affairs office, the exam office, the library, and some vantage points.

“We believe that the ten computers are going to help a lot,” he said.

Senior Assistant Registrar in charge of Advancement and Alumni Relations, Mr. James Oberko called for a strengthened collaboration between the alumni and university to ensure mutual growth.

He emphasized that beneficial alumni activities will not go unnoticed.

“We’re looking at you taking up projects, in areas of mentorships and homecomings.

“Please keep it in mind that we’ll not only be calling on you to make donations but we’ll be celebrating your achievements,” he said.
