Your Gifts Make The Difference
2011-2012 Donor Recognition Report
Across Penn State Hershey Medical Center and Penn State College of Medicine, it's easy to see how your gifts clearly make a difference in the lives of patients, families, physicians, faculty, students, and staff in meaningful, life-changing ways.
The impact of your gifts is the unbreakable thread that weaves throughout our institution as we accelerate scientific discovery, develop novel treatments, and educate future generations of physicians, researchers, and scholars. It is evidenced in thousands of patients, their lives transformed by doctors who could not have attended medical school without the help of a scholarship. It inspires the faculty to educate and mentor those who will shape the future of health care. Generations will live longer and healthier lives, finding hope for themselves and their loved ones, all because of your gifts.
