Dear Parents, Family and Friends,
The Parents Council at the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at the University at Buffalo supports the activities of our students and supplements the resources of the medical school. The Parents Council sponsors activities and events that enhance a sense of community and strives to give students a "little something extra" that would not otherwise be provided.
The Jacobs School offers amazing opportunities and with our ongoing support, our students are on the path to success. The months since March 2020 have been full of uncertainty as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. Navigating medical school in the midst of so many unknowns and changes has been challenging. But our students have strengthened their resolve to work toward completion of their degree with the flexibility and willingness to do whatever is needed to continue their learning. And, it is abundantly clear that those in the field of medicine, whether in research or direct patient care, have brought us through this pandemic with vaccines and science-informed, evidence-based patient care.
Those who have chosen medicine as their life path and have the privilege of following that path through the Jacobs School, have come through these challenging times stronger, more resilient, more compassionate and more tenacious than they ever imagined.
The Parents Council provides funding for student activities and organizations, Match Day, student clinician ceremony, graduation dinner dance, class photograph and yearbook, dinner nights and bagel drops.
Our students need the certainty of our support. Your generous financial gift is critical in assisting our students during their time in medical school. Despite the current restrictions on certain activities as a result of Covid, we are still finding ways to directly fund student activities – they truly do need it now more than ever. We appreciate your consideration and ongoing support.
Marlaine Hoffman, Parents Council Chair
