These gifts are greatly appreciated by the people being honored and their families.

    A gift made to the Department of Emergency Medicine in memory of a person who has passed away is a special way to honor a beloved friend or family member. Such a gift creates a legacy and memorializes the person by providing direct support to the Department.
