The School of Public Health and Health Services (SPHHS) has received the largest gift in #GWU history -- $80 million dollars to support our work tackling today's complex health issues. $40 million of the gift comes from the Milken Institute, a non-profit non-partisan research institution. $30 million comes from the Sumner M. Redstone Charitable foundation and will be used to create the Sumner M. Redstone Global Center for Prevention and Wellness. $10 million comes from the Milken Family Foundation, which will be used to endow the dean's position at the school of public health and to create new Dean's Scholarships for students. In recognition of these gifts, the school will be renamed the Milken Institute School of Public Health at George Washington University.

"Morning Joe" Co-host Mika Brzezinski discussed her struggles with food and body image at GW on Feb. 25, 2014. The talk was followed by a panel with students who shared their personal struggles with eating disorders. The event was part of a week-long series of events for National Eating Disorders Awareness Week.
Earlier this month, alumnus Andrew Perlman issued a challenge: If 10,282 alumni gave any amount to GW by Feb. 28, he would give $25K for scholarships & student aid. GW's amazing alumni have reached this goal, so another alumnus posed an additional challenge: If 500 more donors give between now & midnight tonight, he will give an additional $10,000 to student scholarships.
