Pharmacy founder gives largest ever donation to UConn for sports medicine center improvements


Trisha Bailey, MD, University of Connecticut (Storrs) graduate and founder of Bailey's Pharmacy and Bailey's Medical Equipment and Supplies, has donated the largest gift ever received by the UConn athletics department to improve its training and sports medicine facilities. 

The donation will go toward renovating and expanding 80,000-square-feet of the recreation center, which will house improved academic, sports medicine, mental health, strength and conditioning and training areas. 

Dr. Bailey graduated from the university in 1999, and was a member of the track and cross country teams throughout her educational career. 

"Trisha is a real-world example of how philanthropists can be transformative in the lives of people," Jake Lemon, president of the UConn Foundation, said in an Oct. 14 news release. "This gift will have an incredible impact on student-athletes both now and for many years to come."
