Why I Give - Catherine Gabster honors her brother

Alan Gabster
Dr. Alan Gabster

Cathy Gabster, MSN ‘07, taught master’s students at the School. She notes: “The UCLA School of Nursing made a big change in my life by enhancing my career in nursing, for which I will always be grateful. Being part of the larger Bruin community has been enriching as well. Alan Gabster, my older brother, passed away in November 2010. He was a retired cardiologist who volunteered setting up and supporting medical outreach clinics and yearly conferences in Panama that continue today. Contributing to the UCLA School of Nursing in his memory allows me to connect great memories of the many people who have been important to me there. I know he would approve and laugh at the same time, remembering the stories we shared about doctors and nurses.”
