In March 2014, the Milken Institute, the Sumner M. Redstone Charitable Foundation and the Milken Family Foundation came together to provide $80 million in collective giving to GW public health, the largest gift in GW history.
Funding new and ongoing research, the establishment of the Sumner M. Redstone Global Center for Prevention and Wellness, and support for the Milken Institute School dean's office, including a newly created public health scholarship program, the impact of this gift will be felt for generations in benefits to public health.
“It is almost hard for me to believe how much we have accomplished. Our school has been able to recruit outstanding faculty, support high-caliber students and build an academic and research infrastructure that allows us to continue our drive to be one of the premier schools of public health in the world.” -Dr. Lynn Goldman
