Family Medicine Endowment Fund

Dr. Chester Fox at the Jefferson Family Medicine Center.

Supporting family practice research, providing care to underserved communities, and teaching interpersonal skills required of a family physician are the goals of this fund.

The Family Medicine Endowment Fund was created in 1997 to support the department’s mission in perpetuity. The fund was established by various donors in order to enhance the programs and activities of the Department of Family Medicine in the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at the University at Buffalo, at the discretion of the Chair of the Department of Family Medicine.

Revenues from the fund sustain a variety of initiatives, such as those that allow residents to take advantage of research opportunities or attend conferences.

In the world of medicine, there is always more that we can do. More physicians we can train. More discoveries we can make. More lives we can save. Now, even as we celebrate all we have recently achieved, we continue to look forward to the possibilities ahead. Bold ambitions require big investments—and generous support. Together, we will continue to build on our shared success and lead the way toward the future of medicine.
