As a teacher and a wife and mother of physicians, education and public health always have been passions of mine. Brenau University is a wonderful example of an institution that marries these two priorities beautifully. My older sister Evelyn Halprin Daniel, WC ’41, attended Brenau, so I have been familiar with the university’s long tradition of academic programming that serves its students, as well as the surrounding community. A recent excellent example of this is the Brenau Rehabilitation Practice at the Downtown Center, where doctoral candidates in Brenau’s physical therapy program work directly with patients under supervision of experienced faculty members. Often these patients either have no insurance or their coverage has expired, yet they still require additional physical therapy. My daughter and son-in-law, Sherrie and Lorry Schrage, and I chose to support the development of Brenau’s Downtown Center and the physical therapy program because we know that when we support Brenau University’s health sciences we are also investing in the health of people wherever Brenau students live.
