Support the Medicare Part D Outreach Clinics

Support our students and communities by making a gift to the Powell-matched Pacific Medicare Part D Outreach Program Endowment Fund. This endowment was established to support and expand the Medicare program, student-centered class activities and Medicare outreach events. The endowment will help offset student travel costs to conferences to present their Medicare-related research and provide funding to support new health-related initiatives that are incorporated into the Medicare outreach events.

 

“This endowment will help ensure the long-term viability of our Medicare program and continued service to the community,” said Rajul A. Patel '01, '06, PharmD, PhD, professor of pharmacy practice.

Every dollar you give is matched by the Powell Match, doubling the impact of your gift! When Pacific received a transformational gift of $125 million from the estate of Robert and Jeannette Powell, a portion of their gift was designated for matching, dollar for dollar, new endowed gifts of $50,000 or more that provide scholarship or those that enhance the academic experience of our students.

For more information, contact Susan Webster at swebster@pacific.edu or 209.946.3116.

The reach of the program has been made possible by the support of many, including community partners, governmental agencies and pharmacist preceptors. The Medicare Part D outreach program only partners with governmental agencies at our events to keep a non-biased atmosphere for the beneficiaries in attendance.

Since 2007, Pacific's Medicare Part D Outreach Clinics have assisted 8,686 beneficiaries with their Medicare Part D drug plan, helping beneficiaries save an estimated total of $8.77 million.
