Russ and Judy Carson renewed their support for the Carson Family Scholarship Program at Harvard School of Public Health. Established in 2001, the program has bolstered scholarship funding for students throughout the School. The Carsons also provide generous support to HSPH students through the Carson Family Fellowship in Health Policy and Management. Since 1994, nearly 100 students, with financial assistance from the Carson Family, have attended the School to gain the skills needed to become public health leaders, and more will soon be funded. Russ is a founding partner of Welsh, Carson, Anderson & Stowe, one of the nation’s largest investment firms specializing in the purchase of privately owned companies in the information services and health care industries. Judy is the founder and executive director of Learning to Look, a program that teaches art appreciation to inner-city children.
