Our New Medical Education Building at Innovation Quarter

A new Medical Education Building for the Wake Forest School of Medicine in Innovation Quarter has just been announced.

We have launched a $50 million philanthropic capital campaign to fund the transformation of a former R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company building into an optimal learning environment.

The building is adjacent to 525@vine, which houses our Physician Assistant Studies, and Division of Public Health Sciences, and near Wake Forest Biotech Place, our modern research facility.

The superheroes rappelled off the hospital roof down to a Brenner Children’s floor and interacted with patients inside of the hospital.
