Event: Engaging Diverse Communities in Philanthropy
March 23, 2018: 2:00 - 3:15pm PT in Seattle, WA at the 2018 AAMC National Professional Development Conference for Institutional Advancement
The tech sector’s insatiable hunger for worldwide talent coupled with the United States’ and Canada’s multicultural societies with Indian, Chinese, Korean, and other Asian backgrounds are bringing global diversity to our communities. New cultures and philanthropic traditions—or lack thereof—mean that healthcare philanthropy must adapt. What are the best practices for engaging diverse patients and donors?
This session will explore the growing field of healthcare philanthropy from donors in your communities of Indian, Chinese, and other Asian backgrounds. We’ll delve into the experiences of University Hospital Foundation (Edmonton, Alberta, Canada), which works with University of Alberta Medical & Dental School, and El Camino Hospital (Silicon Valley), which formed a South Asian Heart Center and a Chinese Health Initiative. We’ll also present the results from our North American research survey and follow up interviews with academic medical centers as well as medical centers in high-tech communities.
