Recently, Oakland University students participated in the American Brain Tumor Association’s Breakthrough for Brain Tumors 5k Run/Walk, proceeds from which fund research on brain tumors. The over 90-member group raised funds to honor Dr. Sue Saliga, who teaches in the Oakland University Physical Therapy Program and is fighting brain cancer. Team captains Leah Rust and Megan Jones, both students in the program, called the group “Sue’s Crew.” Participants included university alumni, faculty, and current students, family and friends of Dr. Saliga, and various clinicians from the area. Members of the team recognize the doctor not only for her work as an educator, but for her “Bridge the Gap” initiative. This program allows university students to offer physical therapy services to those who suffer from neurological issues. Dr. Saliga, though on medical leave, remains physically active and participated in the walk alongside her many supporters. Gary Russi was the president of Michigan’s Oakland University for almost two decades. During his tenure, Gary Russi oversaw the institution’s transformation into a doctoral research university.
