We recently lost a member of our UMC family, JoDee Chouinard, to heart disease. In an effort to bring awareness to early detection and prevention, we are accepting donations to purchase a legacy bench to be placed in the Brown Dining Lobby where JoDee worked. Many people suffer from various heart related diseases and through proper education, diet, and exercise people can live longer lives. Heart disease is among the leading causes of death in the United States and the world. Funds received in excess of the goal will go toward campus programming for heart disease and prevention.
This legacy bench will be a gentle reminder of our dear friend JoDee and loved ones lost to heart disease. This bench will also help to bring awareness to this disease, with the hope that the awareness will lead people to take steps for prevention.
Please consider donating to this important cause.
