SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. – In a tribute to the generosity of physician and philanthropist Dr. Prem Reddy of Victorville, Cal State San Bernardino named the university’s nursing simulation lab in his honor during a ceremony Monday, Feb. 3, and declared it Dr. Prem Reddy Day on campus.
“It is a distinct honor for Cal State San Bernardino, and for me personally, to dedicate this laboratory in recognition of Dr. Prem Reddy’s immeasurable contributions to the medical profession, higher education, area communities, and the health of patients from throughout the Inland Empire and beyond,” said university President Tomás D. Morales.
The dedication was to celebrate Dr. Reddy’s gift of $500,000 to the university and its department of nursing. The gift will allow the nursing lab to keep its equipment – 30 computer stations and a 10-bed lab as well as advanced simulation technology and mannequins – up to date, ensuring that students will be working with state-of-the-art equipment, said Kirsten Fleming, dean of the CSUSB College of Natural Sciences, which houses the nursing department.
