During times like these we feel especially fortunate to partner with a world-class academic health center. We have watched how the extraordinary professionals at VCU Health have handled this health crisis with compassion and strength.
We know that many of you have deep connections to the MCV Campus as you have gone to school here, taught here or received excellent care at VCU Health. Together, we feel a sense of pride and gratitude as we learn how the professionals at VCU Health have adapted so quickly by increasing hospital bed capacity early on, starting clinical trials to research potential treatments for COVID-19 and establishing a test for inpatients.
We hope the stories in our latest issue of the Chronicle of Giving continue to inspire you.
Our cover story features the Pauley family’s exceptional gifts that continue to fortify the Pauley Heart Center as a national leader in cardiac care.
