Please join us in congratulating Dr. Arthur Keiser for being selected as the Chairman for the 2016 Step Out Walk to stop diabetes.
This is what the South Florida American Diabetes Association had to say about him –
“First and foremost, Dr. Keiser is committed to his family, students, philanthropy, and his community. Keiser University’s annual student needs-based and academic scholarship fund has increased to $20 million annually providing deserving students the support necessary to advance their lives and professions through higher education. In further efforts to expand opportunities for aspiring students, Belinda and Arthur Keiser established the Keiser Mills Foundation to provide unique international, entrepreneurial, STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) and health care educational, leadership, and professionalism experiences at home and abroad.
For Keiser University students, faculty and staff, Dr. Keiser and his family have set the example that community service is a responsibility. Established partnerships and contributions of volunteer hours and resources are too numerous to mention, but a few near and dearest to Dr. Keiser, his family, and the University include the American Diabetes Association (ADA), the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, March of Dimes Foundation, Legal Aid Services of Broward County, the American Heart Association, Susan G. Komen Foundation and many, many more.
Over 20 percent of the KU student body is classified as military students or family members of military personnel and for several years, Dr. Keiser has spearheaded charitable giving for related organizations to meet their needs in recognition of their service and sacrifice. The children of deployed service members are recipients of Keiser University’s annual Operation Homefront holiday toy drive. Dr. Keiser has sponsored hundreds of Keiser University employees and students competing in the annual Tough Mudder competition to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project, and other local Veterans’ initiatives throughout the 15 communities in which KU campuses are located.
Having experienced firsthand the impact of diabetes, Dr. Keiser is committed to leading and championing our cause. Over the past few years Dr. Keiser has contributed about $100,000 to the American Diabetes Association both through his 2015 Father of the Year fundraising and donations. He has participated in numerous walks and volunteer activities statewide in support of diabetes research and those impacted by the disease.”
