The Osteopathic Heritage Foundations’ $105 million award to Ohio University’s College of Osteopathic Medicine represents the largest private donation ever given to a college or university in Ohio.
This gift will be used to address some of the most pressing health care issues across the state and the nation – the impending shortage of primary care physicians and the diabetes epidemic.
The transformational gift was jointly announced by the Ohio University College of Osteopathic Medicine (OU-COM) and the Osteopathic Heritage Foundations in Columbus, Ohio, during the Ohio Osteopathic Symposium held at the Hilton Columbus Easton Town Center.
