Jaharis Family Challenge

The history-making gift of the Jaharis Family Foundation brings a large and lasting change to our medical educational facilities. By answering the Jaharis Family Challenge for Medical Education, we seek to raise $10 million to support the Clinical Skills and Medical Education Technology Fund, in addition to other priorities such as financial aid and faculty support.

This is your opportunity to lead.

The learning environment we build today will serve thousands of Tufts students – physicians assistants, dentists, and doctors – and, through them, bring quality care to millions of patients.

Few giving opportunities allow us to have such a profound impact on so many.

By partnering with the Jaharis Family in this challenge, we demonstrate our confidence in the School of Medicine to provide training of exceptional quality and support for students who will serve the world through the practice of medicine.

And just as the Jaharis Family has inspired the community with their gift and challenge, your contribution can be a leadership example to others.

Aviva Must, PhD, Morton A. Madoff Professor

“I see the Morton A. Madoff Professorship as both a great honor and a responsibility. Mort’s vision, which I had the pleasure of experiencing firsthand, was to promote the integration and dialogue between public health and health care, and thereby advance population health for all persons. The Madoff Professorship allows me to carry those ideals forward as a Tufts leader in public health research and education.”

Annetta Grisard-Schrafl, J94P, trustee emerita

“Establishing a professorship at Tufts University School of Medicine was our way of boosting the school’s reputation and development. I know Tufts competes with better funded institutions for the best faculty and students, so I’m proud to have been part of bringing Phil Haydon, PhD, the chair of the Department of Neuroscience, to the faculty. He’s a star who has attracted other great professors to the department."
