Thanks for Giving

I know that you give your time and energy in many places. 

To your families

To your friends

To your communities

To organizations and charities that move and motivate your life

And to us, the University of Minnesota Medical School.

Without you, the Medical School is just buildings and rooms and equipment. There is no knowledge. No research. No administrative or other support. No teaching. No patient care. Nothing.

Our Medical School thrives because you give your expertise, your efforts, your compassion, your help, and your genius. You give your all so that patients can enjoy a better quality of life and better health over a longer lifespan. 

Today some of you will be working in our hospitals and clinics. A special thanks to you for giving up a holiday to ensure our patients are taken care of.

To all of you,

Thanks for giving.
