Explore the many ways you can support our colleagues at the University of Miami Health system and share your gratitude during the holiday season.

Feed our health care heroes.
Nurses, physicians, technicians, patient support staff, and their teams work around the clock to care for our most vulnerable populations—risking their well-being and making sacrifices to serve others. For $7.50, you can supply a UHealth hero with a meal, making an immediate difference to their day.  Click here to learn how your donation can help.

Show your appreciation with a note.
Sharing words of gratitude and encouragement can make a great impact on our front-line workers and health care teams. Read some of the notes that have been shared and use this form to share your appreciation with individuals, departments, or teams. 

Support diversity in medicine.
From research to patient care, ensuring that diversity remains a priority is essential to advancing medicine, especially during challenging times. The Dr. Astrid Mack Diversity Initiative Fund was established to help support scholarships for underrepresented groups pursuing a career in medicine and to aid other diversity-related initiatives at UHealth. Learn more about the Fund and support the need for diversity in medicine. 

Connect with Cards for a Cure at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.
While COVID-19 continues to impact our community and health system, cancer patients and their caregivers also continue to fight. Through Cards for a Cure, donors can send a thoughtful note, while supporting cancer research. All proceeds benefit Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, South Florida’s only NCI-designated cancer center. Send a card to support cancer research and care.
