Making an Impact – The IHP Today

Thursday, October 3, 2019 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. EDT
1 Constitution Wharf, Charlestown, MA

Join us as we party with a purpose and raise funds to support student scholarships!

Making an Impact – The IHP Today will highlight the incredible work of our students in our local and global communities and the innovative research impacting the future of health care. Jon LaPook, M.D., Chief Medical Correspondent for CBS News, will join us to speak to the importance of interprofessional education in the delivery of compassionate care. We look forward to this festive event featuring live music as well as food and refreshments.

Proceeds from the event will provide scholarship support for MGH Institute students, who typically graduate with an average educational debt over $100,000. Through scholarship funding, we can help ease the financial burden these students take on while pursuing their dreams of becoming leaders in their respective health care fields. Your sponsorship will be matched (up to $5,000) through our Kay Bander Matching Gift Program, which means your support will have double the impact and make a significant difference to providing scholarship support for our much-deserving students.

Our students participate in numerous community activities throughout the year, including service learning via their education and volunteering in their free time. For a global perspective, we offer Institute-sponsored travel study to observe or participate in care delivery in other countries.

The Institute’s faculty engage in original clinical research, much of it collaborative and interprofessional, to improve the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of human disorders and disabilities. Areas under study range from autism to dyslexia, from cancer- related fatigue to improving performance of students with reading challenges, as well as to help improve lives of patients after facial transplants.
