As the global coronavirus pandemic evolves, University of Maryland School of Public Health experts are at the forefront of the conversation, helping to correct misinformation, share the latest research on Covid-19 transmission and teach the public how to stay safe.
Now more than ever, your philanthropic support will help us fund student research opportunities, continue to provide educational programming to support growth and attainment, and will help the School reach its mission of serving the greater Maryland community and those abroad on a global scale. All of the funds collected through the SPH Gift Fund will be redirected to fund our COVID-19 interventions, along with supporting any educational programs that will help our students combat this pandemic.
