$1 Million for Research

The gift to a team of investigators at Dartmouth’s Geisel School of Medicine will provide essential funding to develop new and more effective therapies for people with Cystic Fibrosis (CF)—an inherited disorder that causes severe damage to the lungs, digestive system, and other organs in the body.

Geisel’s Groundbreaking Mental Health Program

When Patty Sacks and her husband, Doug Sacks D’80, spearheaded a student mental health program at the Geisel School of Medicine with a gift of $2 million in 2020, they understood the need to better support America’s future doctors—but they could not have foreseen how rapidly that need would become critical. Just months after Healthy Students, Healthy Physicians was launched, the global pandemic hit.

My family and I are so grateful to have Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center nearby. When it came to choosing where I went for my care, medical treatment had to trump everything else—it could make a difference in saving my life. Thanks to my amazing team of providers, I never doubt that I’m being treated in the best possible place, in the best possible way."
