Wolfpack Engagement Survey

One of our goals for the year is to make sure that all of our committee members feel connected to the VUDM organization and cause. In an effort to measure this, please take five minutes to fill out this anonymous committee member survey. Your insight is so important to the betterment and growth of VUDM. As an added incentive, the committee with the highest percentage of respondents will receive a special prize!

VUDM 2015 Donation

VUDM is very excited to announce that our 2015 and 2016 fundraising totals, in addition to supporting the work of neonatology fellow Dr. Tracie Walker, will benefit the Growing to New Heights capital campaign! The Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt is adding on four new inpatient floors to serve a growing population of children and their families. The money that we raise over the next two years will fund a new pediatric inpatient room to be named after Dance Marathon. To learn more about the campaign, watch the video below featuring our very own Miracle Child, Kael!
