Altru received a generous gift from Suzanne 'Sanny' Ryan this past spring to be used specifically for one thing.

The donation will be used to build the "Sanny and Jerry Ryan Center for Prevention and Genetics." The center is the first of its kind in the region and will encourage individuals to think about their health through preventive measures before it comes medically necessary to seek care.

John Green, Altru Health Foundation Executive Director: "It's a tremendous time in our health environment to help individuals get an understanding of what are some of their personal health risks and also beyond understanding their health risks to have the opportunity to work with Altru professionals."

It will be located within the new Choice Health and Fitness Facility, and will open September 24th.
