CHAMPIONING A COMMUNITY THAT CARES

A FOCUS ON GIVING TO GERIATRICS AND PALLIATIVE CARE

“We are all given gifts to share, and by sharing them, we grow personally and as a community.”

Eileen Burg (with watercolor of Pete)

Eileen’s passion for philanthropy was sparked in part by the generous spirit of her late husband, former FirstEnergy executive H. Peter Burg.

“He helped others constantly, often quietly and without recognition.”

After Pete’s untimely passing, Eileen established the H. Peter Burg Fund at the Akron Community Foundation to continue his legacy. The Offices of Geriatrics and Palliative Care at NEOMED benefit from this fund. The Office of Palliative Care aims to improve the quality of life and relieve suffering for patients with chronic, severe or life-limiting conditions. The Office of Geriatrics emphasizes health and wellness as well as helping older adults function better while managing complex conditions.

Eileen Burg is committed to NEOMED. She has made generous contributions to the Offices of Geriatrics and Palliative Care and inspires others to do the same. Eileen Burg and the H. Peter Burg Fund are helping NEOMED Shine On.
