2019 Convocation Crowdfunding Campaign
Morehouse School of Medicine’s 35th Fall Convocation & White Coat and Pinning Ceremony
At MSM, Convocation recognizes and celebrates the incoming class of students, and serves as the official kickoff of the new academic year. It is a pivotal time and transformational experience for the first-year students who represent our Doctor of Medicine, Physician Assistant Studies, Graduate Education in Biomedical Sciences and Master of Public Health programs.
This time-honored tradition is viewed as a rite of passage by many of the students and alumni who have participated throughout MSM’s history. Incoming MPH students receive blue blazers and pins symbolizing their entrance into a field dedicated to protecting the public health and welfare of our communities. First-year MD and – this year, for the first time ever – Physician Assistant students receive their white coats, and GEBS students are fitted with their lab coats as symbols of the trust bestowed upon them as they carry on the noble traditions of medicine and science. GEBS students also receive pins.
This is How You Can Help
Crowdfunding is designed to make donating easy, fun, and supports gifts of all sizes. We realize that every gift matters, whether it is $25, $250 or more. Because what you give will make a tremendous impact on our students and help ease the cost of medical school education.
Crowdfunding is also about sharing and encouraging others to join in. When you share your support with your social network, that allows friends, family, and peers to share in the MSM story. It also provides them with an opportunity to invest in the future healthcare leaders and learners who are preparing to serve all of our communities. By helping us "raise the crowd," we are confident that we can exceed our $10,000 goal.
Giving is easy:
1. Make a 100% tax-deductible contribution at the level that is right for you by clicking an amount to the right.
2. Share your generosity with your social network on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter! Please remember to use the hashtags #MSMConvocation2019 and #MSMImpact!
3. Feel amazing because you just helped a deserving student who may save a life, change health policy, or conduct groundbreaking research that provides a cure for a life threatening illness.
Thank you in advance for your commitment and for sharing the story of Morehouse School of Medicine all around the country. We are truly stronger together!
