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 2017 Fundraising Dinner and Silent Auction was a sold-out event and a great success! It was held on April 21 at the Wilderness Hotel & Golf Resort, in Wisconsin Dells, and featured a silent auction, raffle and a compelling presentation by Mona Hanna-Attisha, MD, MPH, FAAP, the pediatrician whose research and persistent advocacy exposed the Flint, Michigan water crisis.

Prescription for a Healthy You at the
Boys & Girls Club
Each year, the Foundation brings together a coalition of students pursuing degrees in medicine, nursing and pharmacy to lead a day of activities aimed at educating and empowering youth to make healthy choices. The Prescription for a Healthy You program is held at locations of both the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee and Dane County—working with students from both of Wisconsin’s medical schools.

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.
