Are you considering your end of calendar/tax year giving? If so, please consider one of the areas of impact below. Each of these funds directly supports our students and their journey to pursuing a pharmacy degree.
This fund supports mental health initiatives at the College of Pharmacy, including the newly established Mental Health First Aid Training.
“Stigma of mental health prevents students from seeking help. This initiative aims to begin a process of destigmatizing mental health and starting a meaningful dialogue as it relates to our commitment to care for ourselves and one another. “ – Justin Petway ‘21
This fund provides support for sustaining the mind and spirit of students in the College of Pharmacy. Particularly those that face situations of food insecurity.
“People are often surprised to learn of the food insecurity that exists among our students. Recent national research shows that one in five students have very low levels of food insecurity.” – Dr. Vivia Hill-Silcott Director of Diversity Programs and Academic Support at the UGA College of Pharmacy
This fund supports student travel to professional meetings.
“As a student pharmacist, having the opportunity to travel to professional meetings and network with fellow students and champion pharmacists has been one of the most rewarding parts of my pharmacy school career. At these meetings I have built several lasting relationships with pharmacists around the nation who are seeking to invest in the next generation of pharmacists, which has greatly impacted my professional future.” – Savannah Rainey Class of ’22
This fund supports student scholarships in each of the College’s academic programs.
“I feel that people like our alumni, who give back to their community and who donate to scholarships, are some of the kindest and most selfless people in this world. With their contributions, they have given me the ability to cover some of my expenses and ease a little bit of the financial burden I have accrued.” – Laura Ramirez, Class of ‘23
