Founding Grant Society Luncheon

Spring 2016

More than 350 Stanford alumni and friends gathered at the Frances C. Arrillaga Alumni Center in April 2016 for a spring Founding Grant Society event. Physician and best-selling author Abraham Verghese, the Linda R. Meier and Joan F. Lane Provostial Professor of Medicine at Stanford, spoke about the importance of "bedside medicine" and the ritual of the physical examination in a technological age. He was joined by Stephen Palumbi, the Harold A. Miller Professor in Marine Sciences and senior fellow at the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment, who discussed the devastating impact climate change is having on the world's coral reefs.

The Founding Grant Society honors those who plan to leave a legacy for Stanford through their wills and other planned gifts. For more information, please contact the Office of Planned Giving.
