The Wisconsin Partnership Program at the UW School of Medicine and Public Health has released its Fiscal Year 2021 Draft Annual Report for public comment.

The Annual Report covers program activities and expenditures from July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021.

Final edits will be completed after the comment period closes. Comments must be submitted to by Sunday, Oct. 10, 2021.

The Wisconsin Partnership Program’s Oversight and Advisory Committee and Partnership Education and Research Committee will review the comments before the report is submitted to the University of Wisconsin System Board of Regents later this year.

The Wisconsin Partnership Program is a permanent endowment at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, committed to improving health and advancing health equity through investments in community partnerships, education and research. It was established in 2004 through an unprecedented gift as part of the conversion of Blue Cross and Blue Shield United of Wisconsin to a stock insurance corporation. To date, the Wisconsin Partnership Program has awarded more than 564 grants for $264 million to advance biomedical and population health research, promote health care and public health workforce development, and support community partnerships to improve health and advance health equity.
