The annual Thriller at Miller softball game is a fundraiser for the MCW Senior Mentor Program (SMP) at the Village at Manor Park. Village at Manor Park is a senior living community on Milwaukee’s south side, and the Senior Mentor Program is an elective that first-year students can take as part of their required Clinical Continuum course. The program matches students with older adults associated with the Village at Manor Park and educates the students on the aging process. It is coordinated by Mary E. Cohan, MD, Assistant Professor of Medicine (Geriatrics and Gerontology), and David W. Lillich, MD, Associate Professor of Family and Community Medicine.
