Adtalem Global Education supports our healthcare workers
With universities solely dedicated to healthcare in our family of institutions, Adtalem Global Education is committed to supporting nurses and healthcare professionals—many of which are our students and alumni—who are everyday heroes working on the front lines during the pandemic and in their day-to-day work caring for others. From volunteering time to donating essential PPE and healthcare supplies, we are stepping forward for those who have a calling to serve our communities.
Chamberlain University, with support from the Adtalem Global Education Foundation, donated $200,000 to the American Nurses Foundation Coronavirus Response Fund for Nurses to further support our #CareForCaregivers initiative honoring those who are bravely battling this global pandemic.Chamberlain also matched donations dollar-for-dollar, up to a total of $50,000, through July 1, 2020. Recognizing the significant and lasting impact that this unprecedented situation will have on the mental well-being of healthcare professionals, our contributions to the American Nurses Foundation will directly support mental health and well-being initiatives—one of the Fund’s critical areas of focus.
In addition, Chamberlain University campuses, colleagues and teams have contributed nearly 200,000 PPE and other healthcare items to 46 partner hospitals and medical centers across the country, as well as hundreds of care packages filled with snacks and gift cards for some 50 healthcare systems nationwide.
Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine (RUSVM) has partnered with the St. Kitts Ministry of Health to purchase life-saving supplies that will support the island’s response to public health situations. Additionally, RUSVM has committed resources to the Basseterre Animal Rescue Centre (BARC) on St. Kitts to ensure there are necessary provisions for the low-cost small animal wellness clinic for local cats and dogs.
