• Gifts were used to match a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation New Careers in Nursing Scholarship Program, providing significant scholarship support to students. The School has received funding from the program for six consecutive years totaling more than $750,000.
• Public school students with limited access to health care benefited from the continued expansion of the comprehensive physical and mental health services offered by our Rochester school-based health centers.
• Unrestricted gifts provided the resources for pilot studies in four areas of research: health promotion and healthy behaviors; health care delivery systems; chronic illness and palliative care; and symptom identification and management. These studies could lead to larger funding opportunities, helping the School build Centers of Excellence in these areas.
