Dolly Parton has announced a $1 million donation to pediatric infectious disease research at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

“I love all children. No child should ever have to suffer, and I’m willing to do my part to try and keep as many of them as I can as healthy and safe as possible,” Parton said in a statement.

The donation will benefit VUMC’s Division of Pediatric Infectious Diseases and its ongoing research into understanding how viruses and bacteria cause disease, their resistance to antibiotics, and how these infections can be prevented and treated in the future.
