We are pleased to be able to offer support of all kinds to programs in our Fort Wayne community that are committed to health, wellness, and medical education. Whether your organization needs volunteers or monetary donations, we'd love to help where we can.
MEDICAL SCHOOL LIAISON
Our Medical Student Liaison Committee organizes and provides healthy snacks for the medical students to aid them during their busy schedules, co-hosts the Annual Welcome BBQ, assists the student-led Trunk or Treat Fundraiser, and offers general support throughout the year for students.
It is the day when the Alliance endeavors to educate children in the science of medicine, by providing them the opportunity to visit with doctors, nurses, dietitians, and other health care professionals to learn about careers in medicine. In addition, this event makes available important general health information to children and their families.
CINDERELLA DRESS DAY
Any female high school student may attend Cinderella Dress Day, and will be invited to select a dress and participate in brief educational sessions. Since its inception more than fifteen years ago, it is estimated that over 3,800 dresses have been given to young ladies in our community.
Throughout the Alliance's 80 year history, providing health career scholarships have been a vital component in our mission. We currently partner with Tapestry, The Boys and Girls Club, and Vincent Village to continue this strong tradition.
The Alliance continues participation with the ISMA Government Relations Staff in working toward the Passage of the Assignment of Benefits Bill. Personal meetings and communication with state legislators, attendance and active participation at Medicine Day at the Statehouse keeps us abreast of the most recent issues.
