Alaina Maciá and her husband Daniel have been supporting public health at Washington University for several years. She is the president and CEO of Medical Transportation Management (MTM) Inc., and serves on the National Council of the Institute for Public Health. Alaina and MTM, Inc. have made a five-year pledge to the Leading Together campaign at Washington University totaling more than $150,000. A portion of this gift is designated to create the MTM, Inc. Community Health Access Fund, which will support work aimed at reducing and eliminating health disparities, particularly here in St. Louis, but also in other communities across the country. Their generous pledge will also support the public health facilities in Hillman Hall.
In addition, the Maciás recently created an annual scholarship in honor of Alaina’s father and stepmother – the Lynn and Peg Griswold-MTM Scholarship – which supports MPH students at the Brown School.
“We greatly appreciate this generous gift from the Maciá family and MTM, Inc. This donation will go a long way toward furthering our mission of advancing public health efforts at Washington University, and give us some much-needed resources to further our efforts to end health disparities in St. Louis and beyond,” said William G. Powderly, MD, the Larry J. Shapiro director of the Institute for Public Health.
