Good golly, Mrs. Dolly!

Dolly Parton has donated $1 million toward pediatric infectious disease research. The funds, that are going to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, will ultimately help fight against serious diseases in children.

This comes after her $1 million donations to the Medical Center during the pandemic that helped kickstart the fight against COVID-19, which then birthed the Moderna vaccine.

Professor of Pediatrics and director of the Division of Pediatric Infectious Disease, Mr. Mark Denision, says he is deeply honored by her contribution and “this gift will accelerate our work and support new ideas.”


Parton has also helped raise $1 million for a new hospital in her hometown of Sevierville, Tennessee.

Her next venture is being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on November 5th.
