Invest in Our Path Forward with the IDSA Foundation
Sonali Advani MD, MPH

As I look ahead at the path before me, I am truly grateful for the hands-on support and mentorship opportunities I received through the IDSA Foundation.

Over the past 3 years, the IDWeek Mentorship program has paired me with infectious disease mentors from different institutions and offered many opportunities for networking with other mentors during the annual meeting. I was provided with wonderful guidance for navigating my career, negotiating my first faculty position, and maintaining a positive work-life balance by my mentors. Their support and guidance has continued even after the IDWeek Mentorship program and greatly influenced my career trajectory.

Each year, the IDSA Foundation provides hundreds of medical students; residents and fellows with highly effective mentorship and research opportunities. And their efforts are paying off. For the first time in years, the field is experiencing an increase in the number of students applying for ID fellowships.

I am asking you to invest in the IDSA Foundation and its efforts to support early career health professionals like me. The need for ID professionals has never been greater. Together we can change lives!

Don’t let this season of giving pass without making a gift to the IDSA Foundation’s Our Path Forward campaign. Take it from me, your gift will inspire the next generation of ID leaders. Please donate today!

Thank you!
