“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.
