Friends and Supporters

A $10 million commitment from philanthropist Iris Cantor will enable the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA to advance its work in educating the next generation of clinicians and scientists in women’s health care.

Cantor, a longtime UCLA donor and a champion for women’s health, was honored at a campus event Sept. 27 by UCLA Chancellor Gene Block and Dr. Kelsey Martin, dean of the Geffen School of Medicine. Of the new commitment, $8 million will support training and education in women’s health care at the medical school.

“Iris Cantor’s profound contributions to women’s health have strengthened UCLA’s medical enterprise by allowing us to help improve the health of thousands of women,” Block said. “We are grateful for her vision and support that has helped make UCLA a leader in providing this critical care all across the region.”
