Ways to Give

Warner M. and Lora Kays Pomerene Chair in Medicine


Through an additional bequest to The Ohio State University Development Fund from Warner M. Pomerene and Mrs. Lora Kays Pomerene, of Coshocton, Ohio, it is desired to change the “Endowed Professorship” to an “Endowed Chair” to be known as The Warner M. and Lora Kays Pomerene Chair in Medicine.

All gifts are to be invested in the University’s Permanent Endowment Fund, under the rules and regulations adopted by the Board of Trustees and The Ohio State University, with the right to invest and reinvest as occasion dictates.

The annual income is to be used to provide salary and program support for the work of distinguished teacher, researcher and physician who is specializing in the field of primary care with appointment to the Pomerene Chair to be recommended by the Dean of the College of Medicine and approved by the Vice President for Health Sciences and the Board of Trustees.

Should the need for this faculty position cease to exist or so diminish as to provide unused income, then the income may be used for any purpose whatsoever as determined by the Board of Trustees, with preference being given to recommendations from the appropriate official of the University who is then directly responsible for primary care medical education.
