Driving Health and Vitality with Our Community
The AIM/ROADS Summer Programs are offered by MCW to high school students from diverse backgrounds interested in careers in medicine and biomedical research. The Apprenticeship in Medicine (AIM) program emphasizes academic preparation, achievement and career awareness. The Research Opportunity for Academic Development in Science (ROADS) provides a meaningful experience in a research laboratory setting. Program support provided during the Campaign included contributions from Bader Philanthropies, Inc. that have helped ensure access for students and enhancements to their experience.
The Rapid Response Fund provided support to the frontline healthcare professionals at Froedtert Hospital throughout the pandemic. The support from across our community has helped to keep our physicians, staff, and patients safe through the purchase of personal protective equipment (PPE). Corporate and community partners helped reduce a number of burdens on our frontline workers through support for emergency lodging and meals, childcare and eldercare services, mental health services, and more.
The generous support from across our community to the Rapid Response Fund helped to meet the rapidly changing needs presented by the pandemic. I am grateful to everyone who helped our frontline workers rise to this challenge effectively and compassionately.
