A Faculty Conversation with Rhonda Conner-Warren

“In the Child Health Clinic, the number one issue is immunizations,” Rhonda Conner-Warren said. “We want to make sure that we don’t miss an opportunity and we review immunizations with each and every visit, irrespective of what your visit is for.” Conner-Warren is involved in vaccination efforts with the Ingham County Department of Health - Child Health Clinic.

It's in Giving That We Receive

“The way we conduct our lives ends up changing the globe -  one person at a time, one interaction at a time, one donation at a time.”

For Shawn Malburg-Dunn, CON BSN ’05, philanthropy began as a first generation college student while raising funds for the HOPE scholarship. The moment the scholarship was awarded she learned a valuable life lesson; it is in giving that we receive. It is not the size of the gift that matters; it is the impact you can make on a student’s life.
