Charting a Course for Better Health Care

Delivering the right amount of service at a reasonable cost. “That’s the essence of the Dartmouth Atlas,” says Dick Fleming (D’53), “and what attracted me to learn more about it and to support it. I appreciate knowing that my gift will make a tangible contribution.”

A gift from Dr. Norman Payson ('73) will help ease the financial burden of medical school for students at Geisel. On a recent visit to Geisel, Payson met with students Rachel LaRocca (left) and Bridget Curley.

Giving Back, Paying Forward

Giving in support of student scholarships feels good. Dr. Norman Payson (’73) can attest to that. The Geisel alumnus and his wife, Melinda, recently made a $1 million gift that brings their total giving to scholarships at Geisel to $3.5 million.
