OUR MISSION: Fuel Our Heroes Austin seeks to promote fundraising for Dell Medical School’s COVID-19 Relief Fund. We strive to do so by uniting the current UT student body, UT alumni, and the greater Austin community.
During this unprecedented time, we have been called upon to do our part and stay at home to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Although our efforts help reduce the impact of the virus, there are still heroes sacrificing their well-being for our protection by risking their lives on the front lines. Our medical professionals are working diligently, day after day, to provide treatment and relief around the world.
Dell Medical School physicians and clinical staff are working around the clock to screen patients and strategize with available testing and treatment resources. As the academic health system for Central Texas created in 2014, Dell Medical School is working hard during this pandemic to support its healthcare professions.
Tax Deductible Donations will support the Emergency Response Fund at Dell Medical School.
Philanthropic support will allow Dell Medical to secure additional personal protective equipment, vital Covid-19 testing and medical supplies; provide overtime pay for care providers; and implement telemedicine and other novel approaches for addressing the needs of our existing patient population and community.
Fuel Our Heroes Austin is a branch of the Fuel Our Heroes organization led by UT undergraduate students studying Business Honors, Accounting, Biomedical Engineering, Psychology, Chemistry and Pre-Health certificates.
