COVID-19 UPDATE: Bryant & Stratton College is remotely open and continues to serve our students. Learn More
Our connection to the communities we serve has had a significant influence on our 165 years of education. In this extraordinary time, we are proud of the efforts taken by many of our campuses to donate medical supplies in their communities in order to support of the efforts to combat the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
The Wauwatosa, WI campus recently donated upwards of $20,000 worth of medical supplies to the Milwaukee County Health Department. The donation included masks, gloves, gowns and other protective gear.
"We encourage other local colleges with healthcare programs to see what supplies they can donate to the community,” said Medical Assisting Academic Program Director Dr. Marne Bonomo.

With a growing need for ventilators for patients being treated for COVID-19, the Richmond, VA campus contacted the John Randolph Medical Center (JMRC) in order to lend them the ventilator used by healthcare students on campus.
The team at the Richmond campus made sure to personally deliver the ventilator to JRMC and you can learn more about the donation and what it means for the treatment of patients here.
The Southtowns campus in Orchard Park, NY also made a sizeable donation to a local hospital this week. The healthcare program at the Southtowns campus collected their extra masks, gloves and gowns and donated them to South Buffalo Mercy Hospital, which is part of Western New York’s Catholic Health Network.
The donation from the Southtowns campus will allow Mercy Hospital and Catholic Health to direct the supplies where they are needed most as they treat the spread of coronavirus.
