Med Staff for Med Students Campaign Provides Milestone Support

After working for several years as a wildlife biologist, Lisa Blankenship realized that becoming a physician would satisfy both her scientific curiosity and desire to help people. Thanks to a Med Staff for Med Students scholarship, Lisa was able to prepare for a career in internal medicine at Rush Medical College, and now serves the Chicago community.

More than 125 medical staff at Rush supported the Med Staff for Med Students campaign in fiscal year 2019, which resulted in more than $151,000 in scholarship gifts for Rush medical students. Med staff participation has helped Rush provide scholarship support to 11 students like Lisa since the campaign’s inception.
