In gratitude: 2017 Q3 gifts support the work of our members
Philanthropic support of the Department of Medicine enables us to pursue our mission with vigor. Our ability to advance the health of the people of Wisconsin and beyond through high quality, patient-centered care, innovative research, and education of the next generation of physicians is strengthened by these gifts, and we believe that it is important to recognize donors who have also committed to this shared mission.
Vital Signs publishes quarterly listings of donors who have contributed gifts of $10,000 or more to funds designated for research, scholarly work aimed at improving clinical care, or medical education in the department. (Anonymous donations may be omitted at the request of the donor.) We are deeply grateful to donors who have contributed during the third calendar quarter of 2017:
- Virginia Lee Cook Foundation - An additional $15,000 to support the research of Didier Mandelbrot, MD, professor (CHS), Nephrology.
- Gifts of more than $16,000 in memory of Julie Mosher toward the George and Julie Mosher Research Fund, which supports research in interstitial lung disease by Keith Meyer, MD, professor, Allergy, Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine.
- Fraternal Order of Eagles, Aerie #1502 from Prairie du Chien - $11,000 from the organization's 2017 Heart and Cancer Telethon to support the Cardiovascular Research Center. (See pictures from the event below)
- A realized estate gift of more than $18,000 from the late Mr. Ronald Gransee to support kidney research within the Division of Nephrology.
