Concordia University Ann Arbor renames its nursing school after local donors
ANN ARBOR – Ronald and Marvel Jones are no strangers to CUAA. In 2018 the couple made their first transformational gift to the university after touring the School of Nursing and meeting with Assistant Vice President of Academics, Cindy Fenske, DNP. Fenske is looking to incorporate augmented reality (AR) into the current simulations used by the nursing students. Dr. Ryan Peterson, vice president of administration, renaming the School of Nursing reflects the commitment and generosity of the Joneses.

Donors endow Michigan Medicine’s hospital dog program
ANN ARBOR – A gift from donors Lainie and Kenny Lipschutz and the Lipschutz Family Fund has made Michigan Medicine’s Paws4Patients a permanent program in the health system. To honor the family’s generosity, the program has been renamed the Lipschutz-Danzansky Family Paws4Patients Program. Established in 2016 with the support of several donor families, the program -- and its four-legged caregivers -- provides support and comfort to Michigan Medicine patients and their families. (Courtesy: Michigan Medicine)The Lipschutzs are also members of the Michigan Medicine C.S. Each dog was matched with Michigan Medicine based on the types of patients that receive care and the health system’s needs.
