March 22, 2013 - USA College of Medicine to Host 5th Annual Gumbo Chili Showdown
The fifth annual Gumbo Chili Showdown will take place April 6, 2013, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. preceding the University of South Alabama Jaguars Spring Game at Ladd-Peebles Stadium.
This annual event benefits the Regan Robinson Young Scholarship Fund at the USA College of Medicine. The event will feature both gumbo and chili from competing teams representing area medical practices and local businesses.
The Gumbo Chili Showdown was created in 2008 by USA medical students and continues to be a project organized by students at the USA College of Medicine.
The event supports a scholarship created in memory of Regan Robinson, a medical student at USA who was diagnosed with advanced colon cancer in 2003 at the age of 23. The scholarship provides assistance to a rising senior medical student who embodies Regan’s spirit and character.
