Barry & Virginia Weinman Dean’s Chair in Medicine
In 2008, Barry and Virginia Weinman established the Dean’s Chair in Medicine at the John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM) to inspire additional gifts in support of the University of Hawaiʻi and JABSOM, and enhance the dean's ability to positively impact the future quality of health care in Hawaiʻi.
This endowed fund helps the dean to take advantage of unanticipated opportunities and address key priorities within the medical school.
Through their generosity, there is private funding available for recruiting and retaining talented faculty; to support quality research and provide seed research funding, particularly among promising junior faculty. This fund also supports initiatives which enhance the medical education curriculum; to better address the physician and health care work force shortage in the state, and to enhance the medical school’s role in shaping health care policy for the state.
