Douglas Brand, MD, was one of the first doctors to open Stony Brook University Hospital in 1980. His wife, Barbara Brand, PhD, worked at the Stony Brook University Library beginning in 1978.

The couple watched Stony Brook change throughout their careers and were a big part of the progress that has been made. Together, they have created the Drs. Douglas and Barbara Brand Diversity in Medicine Endowed Scholarship Fund at Stony Brook University as part of their family’s commitment to education.

Douglas explained that his father founded an endowed scholarship at the University of Connecticut, where he was an engineering professor. “His donation provided tuition for one new engineering student each year, and it gave him a lot of joy,” Douglas said. “My father linked his legacy to that university by helping students, and I thought we could do the same at Stony Brook.”
