Alfred Caffiero

“When you love what you do, you want to share all your knowledge and experiences.”

Physical therapist and UB student mentor Al Caffiero has been teaching at the School of Public Health and Health Professions for more than 30 years, despite being diagnosed in 1995 with Lou Gehrig’s disease. In 2001, his friends and colleagues established the Alfred T. Caffiero Foundation to provide annual cash scholarships to outstanding doctoral students. To date, 25 students have benefited from this gift.
