ACHIEVING 20|20: Fall 2016


August 6, 2016, was an historic day for Marshall B. Ketchum University as President Alexander and the Board of Trustees formally dedicated MBKU’s newest health care center, Ketchum Health in Anaheim.

Faculty members and students are dedicated to advancing health care education and treating the whole patient at Ketchum Health. Together, our optometry students, PA students and pharmacy students will be able to connect first-hand in an interprofessional learning and clinical environment. With more than a century of tradition on which to build, Ketchum University is already positioned as a national leader in interprofessional education, but we can do more with your help.

I am honored to be working on this campaign effort with fellow alumni, the MBKU leadership team and the Board of Trustees. Can you really imagine what we have been part of over the years? I am so proud of SCCO’s leadership in revealing our bolder side as we have become a university. As a student, I would have never imagined that one day SCCO would be recognized as a leader in interprofessional education, but I am very proud of the amazing progress we are making under the leadership of President Alexander.

In fact, I am so excited that I recently pledged $50,000 to the ACHIEVING 20|20 Campaign in support of naming the Center of Philanthropy at Ketchum Health. Recognizing that charitable support is the key to success for any great institution, I am investing in this prestigious university with a long track record of excellence in education and patient care but which also has a great vision for the future. I am proud to support Ketchum University, its ACHIEVING 20|20 Campaign, and its vision to reimagine the future of health care education.

Whether you choose to participate as a donor, volunteer or vocal champion, your support is critical to our success. With $20 million raised by 2020, we will cement our commitment to world-class facilities, clinical experiences, student scholarship and research excellence. Please join me in this defining moment for our great institution. Your generosity will matter for generations.
