The Hugh M. Gloster Society
In 2007, we launched the Hugh M. Gloster Society. Named in honor of one of MSM's esteemed founders and late president of Morehouse College, the Gloster Society was established to help grow philanthropy and to enhance our knowledge of exceptional generosity to the Institution. Any donor who gives $1,000[i] or more in a 12-month period is automatically a member of the Gloster Society.
To show our gratitude for your generous support, and to demonstrate the importance
of your investment with our institution, we offer exclusive access and information
to our Gloster Society members as outlined below:
President’s Circle $25,000+
Leadership Circle $10,000
Catalyst’s Circle $5,000
Circle of Friends $1,000
In addition, all donors who invest in scholarships and/or endowed funds will receive
an annual stewardship report, detailing fund health and use.

The Louis C. Brown Vanguard Award: Honoring Health Care Champions
In 2009, MSM established the Louis C. Brown Vanguard Award. The award is named in honor of the late Atlanta internist and a founder of MSM. The Vanguard Award recognizes individuals whose pioneering spirit and demonstrated leadership have impacted issues of health disparities in Georgia and the nation.
Inaugural Vanguard Award recipients were A.D. "Pete" Correll, chairman of the Board of Directors of the Grady Memorial Hospital Corporation and retired chairman of Georgia-Pacific Corporation, and Michael B. Russell, CEO of H.J. Russell & Company and member of the Board of Directors of the Grady Memorial Hospital Corporation.
2018 Vanguard Award Recipient - Kaiser Permanente
Kaiser Permanente has been a loyal partner of Morehouse School of Medicine for most of the Institution’s lifetime. Its continued support has enabled MSM to provide scholarships, grow educational programs, expand our clinical outreach and develop innovative research programs.
Launched in 2017, Kaiser was the lead partner in the establishment of the Undergraduate Health Sciences Academy. The UHSA is a strategic response to the growing need for health care professionals in underserved urban and rural communities across Georgia, designed to add highly-skilled professionals and diversify the work pool. In addition, Kaiser Permanente’s strategic giving has helped empower the Satcher Health Leadership Institute to become a preeminent health leadership institute and a force in creating global health equity. Kaiser Permanente has also helped our students thrive through their continued support of scholarships. Thanks to Kaiser, our medical students can make their dreams of becoming a physician a reality.
The MSM-Kaiser Permanente partnership continues to deliver a true and meaningful impact, improving the quality of health care locally and abroad. Thanks to Kaiser Permanente, our students and communities “Live Well and Thrive.”
