Where's the funding coming from to build the school? “The regional legislators have been excellent in lobbying together to help the general assembly see what an important bioscience economic driver this is going to be for southwestern Indiana. So, we received significant funding from the state in 2015. As well, the city of Evansville has been extremely generous in donating over $35 million to the project. And now, we’re looking to the community to finish it off with some private donations from corporate foundations and private donors.” How will this help with the shortage of doctors in Indiana? “Across the nation, southwestern Indiana is not unique in that there is a shortage of physicians. As healthcare has opened up to so many people across the nation, there is a shortage of well over 100,000 physicians across the country. Here in Indiana, we’re down at least 500 according to some recent research that we conducted.” I think the med school will be a great addition to both our state and community. If you have any questions for me or you’re thinking about buying or selling a home in the Evansville area, don’t hesitate to give me a call or send me an email. I’d be glad to help.
