The Foundation provides funding to train a physician in Pediatric Emergency Medicine; nearly $100,000 a year!
The long-term impact of this training will save countless children whose lives might otherwise be lost.
As a result of our Foundation’s commitment to fund the first fellow, the hospital was able to fund an additional fellow . . .from Japan!
He is the first doctor in Japan with PEM training!
