Summerlin Report – March 2020

The coming month will bring more than just the start of spring to the Summerlin campus, because on March 16 we will welcome the new Director of Philanthropy for the College of Medicine, Ms. Amy Wiles.

Amy has an extensive background in philanthropy that includes work in higher education, private preparatory schools and other nonprofit organizations. Higher education work is her family legacy. As a young girl, she spent summers and holidays with her grandmother who worked at Miami University in Oxford Ohio. Her mother was an administrator for various graduate schools, and her retired Marine father is a long-time lecturer at Penn State University.  Amy began her fundraising career in 1994 at UNC-Chapel Hill and happily transferred her philanthropic support efforts to Las Vegas in 2008. In Southern Nevada, she has made a difference at The Alexander Dawson School, the Las Vegas Philharmonic and most recently at The Animal Foundation. A graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill’s Journalism School, she has experience in all aspects of fundraising as well as marketing and public relations. She currently serves as President of the Las Vegas Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals. Amy is pleased to join the Roseman family and to focus on fundraising for the College of Medicine.

The Summerlin campus continues to bustle with activity, including the monthly Neighborhood Health Series. Recent presentations focused on the important work of Cure 4 The Kids featuring Dr. Alan Ikeda, Chief Medical Officer, and the latest conversation highlighted the medical mission to Uganda undertaken by Roseman’s College of Nursing. Join us for the next Neighborhood Health Series presentation on Thursday, March 23 to learn more about the topic, “The Advent of Precision Medicine: How Your Genes Influence Disease and Drug Response.”  As always, you can register at speakers.roseman.edu.
