The Blue Fund is the annual campaign which addresses NEOMED’s most pressing and important needs – scholarships, academic programs, student activities (including the SOAR Student-Run Free Clinic), and so much more. At times, situations emerge which require shifts in priorities and increased support. The COVID-19 crisis is one of those times.
Many NEOMED alumni and faculty are on the frontlines of this crisis, and the need for our future graduates has never been higher. The pandemic reinforces how NEOMED’s education, research and service are vital to the wellness of every member of our community.
NEOMED’s COVID-19 Community Relief Initiative
In an unprecedented step, the NEOMED Foundation is committing to raise and allocate at least an additional $100,000 from this year’s Blue Fund to address four specific and immediate needs related to the COVID-19 crisis:
- Expanded mental health services for NEOMED students
- A meal program for local families who are struggling
- Additional funds to address student financial emergencies
- PPE and other supplies for students and the broader community (NEOMED has already donated four pallets of various items to help local communities)
