At the UPMC Horizon and Jameson Foundations, we want to celebrate Giving Tuesday as an opportunity to celebrate the impact that you, as a donor and supporter of the Foundations, have had over the past year.
Over the past twelve months, your support has enabled the Foundation to invest in programs that have directly supported community health in and around Mercer and Lawrence counties. Through your generosity, we’ve been able to help patients access medical care through our Transportation Fund, loaned medical equipment at no cost to thousands of residents via the Medical Equipment Recycling Program, and provided support to a wide variety of hospital and community programs that directly improve health and wellness. Thank you for helping make a difference in the lives of everyone served by these important programs!
Last Tuesday, I had the pleasure of visiting the UPMC Jameson School of Nursing in New Castle, Pennsylvania, where the next generation of nurses are receiving their education. There, we had the opportunity to announce five nursing students – Maci Retort, Billie Jo Pardick, Crystal Houk, Alyssa Grumbine, and Chelsea Miller – who received scholarships from the Foundations’ Scholarship Fund. Each of these students received a scholarship made possible by generous donations from community members and supporters like you. They represent the future of healthcare in our region, and we’re thrilled to support them.
I’d like to invite you to join us as we continue to invest in educations like these. Our scholarship program supports a variety of students and professionals, from high school graduates pursuing advanced education in a healthcare related field to our hardworking UPMC Horizon and Jameson nurses continuing to learn through seminars and training. By making a gift to one of these scholarships, you are helping train, and retain, talented healthcare workers who will serve our region and those living here.
