University Mourns the Loss of Montre Bradley
University flags will be lowered today in memory of Montre Bradley, a Strong Staffing aide who worked in Food and Nutrition Services. Bradley, a resident of Rochester who joined the University in February, died July 31 at age 19. He was a student in the Hillside Work-Scholarship Connection program, which offers employment opportunities, career exposure, and medical, dental, and vision services to teens from the Rochester City School District. Family members remember Bradley in a video on the Democrat and Chronicle website.

Pack-4-Success, a nonprofit founded last year by Matthew Cohen ’11, ’12W (MS) and his sister, Emily Cohen ’07, has raised $2,500 this past year to help alleviate the financial burdens associated with back-to-school time for families.

Figuring it out could mean that thousands of people could delay or avoid joint replacement surgery, according to Regis O’Keefe, department chair and the lead investigator on the project.
