Welcome to the donation page of the fundraising of ISCOMS 2019! ISCOMS is a (bio)medical student congress that is organised every year in the University Medical Center Groningen. The focus of the congress is "Healthy Ageing". Partly for this reason we are raising money for a charity that is in line with this focus. This year, our choice fell on the UMCG Alzheimer Foundation. Alzheimer is a degenerative disease that causes dementia in 60-70 percent of the cases. Over 270.000 people in the Netherlands suffer from this disease. This will increase to over 500.000 people in the following twenty-five years. More and more people are dealing with dementia and still there is no cure. The money we raise will support the research in the UMCG to find out the cause, develop new treatment, and to find ways to lower the risk of dementia. Our goal for this year is to raise a minimum amount of 5,000 euros!! We will accomplish this by organising a dinner, a pubquiz and by participating a running contest called 'Nacht van Groningen'.
Every little bit helps to get us closer to our goal! Thank you very much!!
