Furthering the mission of the College of Community Health Sciences will require collaboration, passion and commitment. We need ambassadors of our vision to accomplish this opportunity for advancement in medicine and learning. The timing and success of The Rising Tide is vital to the future of medicine, and our college will be forever impacted through these efforts.

This level of philanthropy will provide the necessary footprint to serve our community and our state. Accomplishing this goal will provide transformational impact to health care across our state, region and beyond.
