Written by on November 18, 2020

The $1 million donation that Dolly Parton made to Vanderbilt University Medical Center for COVID-19 research in April seems to have gone to good use. ABC News reports that when pharmaceutical company Moderna announced that its vaccine appears to be 94.5% effective earlier this week, the list of research supporters in the New England Journal of Medicine included “the Dolly Parton COVID-19 Research Fund (Vanderbilt University Medical Center).” In April, Parton said that she had made the donation in honor of her friend, Dr. Naji Abumrad at Vanderbilt, who told her “they were making some exciting advancements towards research of the coronavirus for a cure.”
