Impact of your Philanthropy
Thank you for considering the Department of Health Management and Informatics in your philanthropic endeavors. As we train the next generation of healthcare leaders and informatics professionals, we want to ensure we are:
- Recruiting the best and brightest students with competitive scholarship packages.
- Attracting and retaining top-quality faculty to educate our students and conduct research in our facilities.
- Providing up-to-date video conferencing technology and classroom space most conducive to learning.
Your gift to the department supports our mission, and for that, we are grateful. In the past, philanthropic gifts have made possible, among other things, the development of a faculty position named for beloved former chair of the department, Dr. Stuart Wesbury; funded many student scholarships; provided travel funds for students to attend case study competitions and professional conferences. A scholarship was created for award-winning faculty member, Dr. Lanis L. Hicks. You may support the scholarship in her name.
Most recently, we have embarked on a campaign to raise funds to help meet current departmental needs and priorities, thanks to Gerard Fischer, a 1984 graduate of the Health Services Management Program. He has offered to match funds up to $25,000 in support of student scholarships and faculty. You can read more about the campaign. As you know, pursuing graduate education can be costly. Your gift will help the department assist and reward students who are working hard to invest in their own future and the future of health care. Please consider lending your support.
