Tufts Medical School gets its largest gift
Tufts University School of Medicine will use its largest gift to create a campus center, build a simulation lab where students can practice on a mannequin, and fund scholarships, the university said.
The Jaharis Family Foundation has given the medical school $15 million. Some of the money will go toward half-scholarships for medical students; the amount depends on whether Tufts is able to meet a goal of raising $7.5 million from other donors for the campus center.
Dr. Steven Jaharis is a 1987 graduate of the medical school and his father, Michael Jaharis, is the founder of Kos Pharmaceutical Co.
