Hooray for our faculty and staff who gave once again to support the missions of the University of Hawaiʻi John A. Burns School of Medicine. The Internal Giving Campaign is an annual way that our employees give back some of their own earnings to show that we believe strongly in supporting medical education for Hawaiʻi.
This year, gifts and pledges from within the school totaled $732,767 and the giving campaign engaged 342 different donors.
Dean Jerris Hedges, MD started the IGC ten years ago when he arrived at JABSOM, and every year he has taken part in the fundraising and the after-celebration–including the one today, which included a clever popcorn bar arranged by JABSOM Associate Director of Development Julie Inouye and the ever-clever events team of Melia Young and TC Chun, who made sure to decorate aprons designating Dr. Hedges and campaign co-chair Dr. Larry Burgess as “Pop Diddy” and “Pop Dizzle.”
