The Foundation hosts and participates in a number of events throughout the year that raise funds, educate and provide outreach, all for the purpose of promoting healthy communities and supporting medical education in Wisconsin. These events offer various opportunities for involvement. From something as simple as buying a raffle ticket to volunteering to represent your specialty at a medical school event, we invite you to get involved and help strengthen the Foundation’s influence on medical and health education in Wisconsin.
Annual Fundraising Dinner and Silent Auction
The 2018 Fundraising Dinner and Silent Auction was held on April 13 at Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center in Madison. It featured a silent auction and a compelling presentation by David Sheff, author of a The New York Times Best Seller list memoir Beautiful Boy, the story of a father’s journey through his son’s struggle with addiction.

Prescription for a Healthy You at the
Boys & Girls Club
Each year, the Foundation works with groups of students pursuing degrees in medicine, nursing and pharmacy to lead activities aimed at educating and empowering youth to make healthy choices using the Foundation’s Prescription for a Healthy You toolkit. The Prescription for a Healthy You program has been held at locations of the Boys & Girls Clubs in Milwaukee, Madison, La Crosse, Wausau and Green Bay—working with students from all four of Wisconsin’s medical school locations.

When asked about their chosen specialty, physicians often recall experiences with mentors during medical school. The Foundation facilitates these connections at both Wisconsin medical schools through Operation: Education by bringing together medical students and physicians. The program provides students an informal opportunity to get answers to questions about a wide range of specialty and primary care options. You can help by representing your specialty or practice type. Learn more.
