Just as supporters are asked to purchase an engraved brick or stone to be part of a physical space on campus, The Blade is offering alumni, employees, patients and supporters of MCO and UT Medical Center the opportunity to purchase a small advertisement celebrating a past caregiver, professor or a favorite memory.

“This is a great opportunity to be featured in what will prove to be a highly read special section with keepsake value about the only academic medical center in the region,” wrote Dr. Ronald McGinnis, interim dean of the College of Medicine and Life Sciences, in a letter distributed to employees on Health Science Campus.

“The University of Toledo is proud to celebrate the impact of the former Medical College of Ohio and all that its contributed to the community as The University of Toledo continues to carry on the tradition of educating the future health-care providers serving northwest Ohio,” McGinnis wrote.

For those interested in sharing a brief message, The Blade has created a flyer with additional information and an order form, which is available here.

Those with additional questions can contact Ron Shnider at The Blade at 419.654.1823.
