Green Family Foundation Gives $10 Million Boost to FIU Community Medicine Program
Date:6/2/2009

MIAMI, June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- The Green Family Foundation (GFF), a private, non-profit organization that supports social programs dedicated to improving community health and elevating universal socio-economic conditions, announced today a $10 million gift, including state match, to fund a community medicine program that is the cornerstone of Florida International University's College of Medicine.

The gift is among the ten biggest ever made to FIU and is eligible for matching funds through the State of Florida's Major Gifts Challenge Grant Program, making its total impact $10 million. The money will be used to establish the Green Family Medicine & Society Program Endowment to support Medicine & Society, a groundbreaking four-year curriculum at the College of Medicine. The curriculum includes NeighborhoodHELP(TM), a program through which medical students will work with colleagues in other disciplines to help families in some of South Florida's underserved neighborhoods.

The Green Family Foundation gift is eligible for a Batchelor Foundation challenge grant worth up to $3 million. With state matching funds, both gifts together could ultimately mean a total of $16 million for the College of Medicine.

"Driven by the strength of its growing medical program, FIU has become an emerging player within the national health education community. This partnership is the perfect synergy of local community outreach and education. FIU's hands-on community approach parallels GFF's vision in helping to serve the communities of South Florida," said Kimberly Green, president of the Green Family Foundation.
