With a generation of small town, family doctors retiring and precious few planning to replace them, it is up to us to pave the way for change.
Together, we can make history by bringing family doctors back to rural areas, especially ours. The first of its kind in the state, the Alabama College of Osteopathic Medicine, located in Dothan, Alabama, will groom future doctors for our region.
The SAMC Foundation recently announced the public phase of an ambitious capital campaign for both SAMC and the Alabama College of Osteopathic Medicine.
The Foundation is dedicated to philanthropic pursuits that will enhance and sustain quality healthcare and community wellness initiatives throughout our region.
In an effort to address multiple objectives, the Foundation’s Board of Trustees embarked on a $6.6 million dollar capital campaign last fall that included a $4.1 million dollar earmark for ACOM.
Through the early and generous gifts of some 200 individuals and businesses in our community, the Foundation has reached 64% of the goal for the college of medicine. To date, more than $2.6 million dollars in private funds has been donated in support of ACOM. The funds will be used to enhance the medical training experience and help underwrite new programs that will benefit the future healthcare needs of the community.
Together, we can make history by bringing family doctors back to rural areas, especially ours. Help us return local healthcare to your hometown. Join the southeast Alabama Medical Center Foundation in building the future of healthcare in our region. Through a variety of giving options, you can help change everything, not only for today, but for many generations to come.
