- IUPUI Spirit of Philanthropy Award (2019)
Indiana University and the IU School of Medicine recognize Dr. Antoinette “Toni” Austin-Glass, for her outstanding service to the school. A 2001 graduate of the IU School of Medicine, Toni has led a passionate group of volunteers to establish the Diversity Recruitment Scholarship, which benefits medical students from underrepresented backgrounds.
The group has set its sights on increasing the impact of the Diversity Recruitment Scholarship and is still actively fundraising. Thanks in no small part to Toni’s visionary leadership, over $215,000 has been contributed to the scholarship in less than six months by friends and alumni, far surpassing the original goal of $100,000.
Toni is an anesthesiologist and a community leader who practices around the country. She completed her medical education and training after earning her MBA and conducting a successful business career. Her husband, John, is a businessman and her two daughters live and work in San Francisco.
