About

Communities are often strengthened by adversity. 

The Health Science Center, acting to protect the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff, has moved to alternative forms of academic experiences. Since the announcement of this change in plans, alumni, parents and friends have asked how they can help students in need of assistance. 

The HSC is proud to announce a newly created fund, the HSC COVID Relief Fund that will help our HSC family adversely affected by the pandemic. 

Through the HSC COVID Relief Fund you have the opportunity to invest in an immediate need and designate your gift to an area that is most meaningful to you:

  • Student Assistance
    Students are always our number one priority and right now is no different. HSC students are facing personal hardships ranging from basic food and shelter, loss of family wages, unexpected distance learning technology costs, access to childcare, and myriad of other issues related to personal health and well-being. Funds given to Student Assistance will be used to meet these direct and critical needs under the supervision of the Office of Student Affairs. Our students are facing difficult circumstances, your gift can make an immediate impact and serve as their lifeline to success.
  • Research
    Kunlin Jin, PhD, is urgently working to learn if stem cell treatment can boost a person’s immune system to ward off COVID-19 pneumonia. Without approved drug therapy or vaccines available for a cure, making the identification of any possible treatments is crucial to slowing and stopping this global pandemic. Dr. Jin founded the International Society on Aging and Disease and is working globally with researchers to find answers to this deadly virus. Based on the team’s early results from Beijing, in February, results are promising. Additional funding of Dr. Jin’s work will further discovery of the immune response of all patients, including the elderly, who are most at risk from COVID-19.

The HSC understands that you are experiencing disruptions and uncertainties in your life as well, so thank you for your adaptability and consideration in supporting the HSC family during this unprecedented time. Our ability to respond quickly and in ways that are needed most makes your support vital.

The HSC remains committed to our values during this challenging time and creating solutions for a healthier community.
