Jane Gwinn and her husband, Guy Fasciana, wanted “to make a gift now and see it grow. We have no children of our own so we chose to endow scholarships as way of giving back. I got a great education at MUSC and it set the foundation in my life,” said Gwinn, whose career has remarkably centered on children as well.

A pediatric pulmonologist, Gwinn’s interest was piqued as a child growing up in Greenville, where her neighbors on either side were pediatricians and her babysitting job as a teen was for the local child psychiatrist. “I was just fascinated by pediatrics from the beginning, and liked taking care of children more than adults,” she added.

With an undergraduate degree from the University of Georgia, she enrolled at the College of Medicine and was graduated in 1981. Following an internship and residency in pediatrics at William Beaumont Army Medical Center in El Paso, Texas, and fellowship in pediatric pulmonology at the University of Arizona, she achieved the rank of lieutenant colonel after assignments in West Berlin, Germany; Martin Army Hospital at Fort Benning, Georgia; and Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas.

Gwinn opened a private practice in the upstate in 1993, then established the Cystic Fibrosis Center, an affiliate of Duke University, in Greenville in 1995. She has also held an appointment as clinical assistant professor for MUSC until her retirement in 2014.
