Improved, more effective medical treatment and care often rests on the shoulders of credible scientific research and clinical studies, which ultimately expand our knowledge of health and medicine. The Foundation values medical research that leads to successful outcomes. We are committed to raising awareness nationally for pioneering research and scientific developments by bringing it to the attention of key influencers such as policymakers, news media and opinion leaders.
As physicians and care providers learn of medical advancements, they can apply relevant new science and treatments in their clinics and practices. This sharing of knowledge results in a win-win for both medical providers and their patients as improved outcomes may help patients live longer, healthier lives.
