Knowledge Changing Life: Telling Our Stories

John R. Raymond, Sr., MD | MCW President and CEOI am very honored to be part of such an incredible organization, where our faculty, staff, students and alumni are generating the knowledge that changes life as a whole, as well as individual lives every day.

Recently, MCW launched a new brand to help tell our stories in a new way. As part of the launch we introduced a new tagline, knowledge changing life, to reflect the breadth and depth of our impact on everyday lives. New knowledge can change everything: a single life, an entire community and the future as we know it. That knowledge starts right here at the Medical College of Wisconsin – and we hope you will be ambassadors to share these stories.

MCW scientists, in collaboration with local, national and global thought leaders and innovators, lead biomedical and population health advancements through laboratory research, clinical trials and community-engaged research. Research drives the kinds of new knowledge that can change everything, including the ways we define, diagnose, treat and prevent disease, as well as how we train the next generation to push forward at the boundaries of what is possible.

Our physicians work with teams of leading scientists to pioneer new treatments. They inspire and educate the next generation of doctors and contribute to groundbreaking research to advance the health of entire communities.

Our faculty members teach and mentor to help advance students' careers and pass on the latest knowledge. Our physicians, pharmacists and other providers care for patients while teaching the next generation of healthcare providers. And our scientists conduct research while working side by side with graduate students.

You can see how the knowledge we are creating at MCW is changing life – and lives – and rewriting people's stories, by visiting knowledgechanginglife.com. Our alumni and donors, as well as our faculty, staff and students, are our most important ambassadors for sharing our stories with friends, neighbors and colleagues. An impactful way to do this is through social media, including Twitter (use the hashtag #MCWknowledge), Facebook, YouTube and LinkedIn. We are building awareness and shifting the perception of MCW – and we need you to help us. We believe the only way to build a healthier world is to build it together!

As always, I encourage you to share your input online or by contacting our editor at MCWmagazine@mcw.edu.
