The Foundation has funded numerous research programs since its inception and continues to support the most promising trials conducted today. These programs have made an enduring impact in shaping the course of treatment for a many common health concerns, from cardiology to oncology. We continue to support important local projects such as the study of treatment-related cognitive impairment in local breast cancer patients as well as a study on the survival impact after cancer treatment in Polk County’s elderly population. Your donations ensure research is at the forefront of progress in the fight against any dreaded disease.
We are also working to nurture a myriad of young medical and nursing professionals by granting a series of scholarships and aiding in their pursuit of degrees in the healthcare field. Our impact in the local community is evident through scholarships given to educational institutions that exemplify higher learning.
