Targeting Your Gift
While there are many general needs within the UA Department of Medicine that undesignated giving serve to support, we have many ways in which you can specify how your gift is used.
One manner in which you can help us augment our mission of teaching and training of the next generation of physicians and medical researchers in Arizona is by designating your gift to the Bressler-Alpert Society Travel Assistance Fund. This fund—which honors Rubin Bressler, MD, and Joseph Alpert, MD, both former chairs of our department—serves to provide funding that allows Internal Medicine residents and fellows in the UA Department of Medicine at the UA College of Medicine – Tucson attend conferences, seminars and other medical professional events. They may be presenting papers or abstracts of which they were a part, had posters accepted for display, or be participants in various academic competitions. Regardless, your support helps broaden their education beyond the walls of our department, college and university.
