Friends and Colleagues,

What can make the difference between a good and great medical school is the availability of resources to attract the best students, recruit and retain the best faculty and support innovative research. While the State of Nevada and government at every level has worked deliberately to ensure that the UNLV School of Medicine has a stable foundation to build on, we have already seen how important caring and generous donors are to our future -- they have contributed scholarship support to our students and have committed to providing a new building for our medical school. In today’s newsletter, we feature our new fundraising professional, Annette Carter, whose career has already shown she has the ability to forge partnerships with foundations and donors that allow medical institutions to move in important new directions rapidly and seamlessly.
