Fall is here and we have officially entered the traditional giving season.
One of the best new developments of the season is the return of in-person events across the Bay Area, with recent highlights including:
- The 20th edition of Catwalk for a Cure in Santa Rosa
- The 19th MPHF Women’s Health Luncheon and Lecture which featured Good Morning America host Robin Roberts
- An illuminating evening with Pulitzer-Prize-winning author and oncologist Dr. Siddhartha Mukherjee to benefit CPMC Foundation
We love the enthusiasm you’ve expressed at these and other local events and we’re excited for more to come. It is wonderful to safely engage with our donors and gratifying to see how strong our bonds remain after being apart so long.
Re-connecting in person is just one sign that we are looking beyond the pandemic. But as we look forward, our future health is well-served by remembering the lessons of the last few years. COVID continues to teach the importance of fortifying healthcare so organizations like Sutter Health can face any challenge while serving our community. We’ve seen that care needs to be more innovative, more inclusive of translational research and outcomes, more equitable for all, and more dedicated to the understanding that mental health is a core part of our overall health.
And yet, our teams face incredible constraints when they want to pursue innovation beyond their standard work—to act on these lessons. The idea that healthcare has the momentum to propel itself forward to new levels is no longer the reality. We have the opportunity to remake the future of care—but whether we have the capacity will be determined through partnerships. And in our case, partnership mean philanthropy.
Our ultimate goal is to make our clinical efforts stronger so that you can live longer and more productive lives. If you are inspired to join us in this mission, please contact us to learn more.
Thank you again for your support.
