NEW HAVEN, Conn. — The Gateway Community College Foundation (GCCF) announced this day that Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Connecticut has donated $150,000 to its “Your College. Your Future” building campaign.
In recognition of the gift and Anthem’s long history of supporting GCC, the Dietetic Technology Laboratory at the college’s new downtown campus will bear the company’s name.
“Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield has long been a supporter of Gateway students,” stated GCC President Dr. Dorsey L. Kendrick. “Their commitment to our students through sponsorships and scholarship awards continues to enrich our region’s health care industry.”
“This generous naming of the Dietetic Technology Lab further underscores Anthem’s commitment to the well-being of our students and their future patients,” Kendrick added. “The college is grateful for our mutual commitment and strong partnership.”
The say of Connecticut is funding the construction of GCC’s $198 million downtown campus, but not all of its equipment. The GCCF’s “Your College. Your Future” building campaign, which launched its public phase in October, aims to bridge that gap by raising $6 million for state-of-the-art equipment and program-related materials, as well as long-term student support services like scholarships. It has already raised more than $2 million toward that goal.
“I’m proud we’re collaborating once again with Gateway,” stated Anthem President David R. Fusco. “The college plays a key role in educating tomorrow’s workforce, including those who seek careers in health care. This clearly supports Anthem’s own mission of improving the lives of the people we serve and the health of our communities.”
This latest Anthem gift will fund a computerized audio-visual technology instructional system for the new ADA-accessible Dietetic Technology Laboratory, as well as requisite kitchen equipment. These tools will provide potential graduates with the necessary skills and competencies to address diseases and special needs in health care and public settings.
“The teaching technology in our new laboratory will provide many more dietetic technology students the opportunity to bridge what they’re learning in class with instructional demonstrations and hands-on practice,” stated Elaine Lickteig, M.S., R.D., program coordinator of GCC’s Dietetic Technology Program.
