The University at Buffalo is building a new medical school, the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences ,$375 million showcase facility, funded in part by NYSUNY 2020 legislation. I became a part of the Circle of Leaders by donating a Learning Station to the new medical school to ensure University at Buffalo’s legacy as a world-class educational institution in my hometown. I wanted to give back to the community that has given me so many amazing opportunities over the years. I was featured in the Fall 2016 Momentum Newsletter. Check me out here.
