GE Healthcare donates $530K to research award program

Waukesha, Wis. -- GE Healthcare today announced a commitment of more than a half million dollars to the American College of Cardiology through the ACC Foundation to fund and support a new ACC Fellowship research awards program.

The goal of the three-year, $530,000 contribution will be to offer financial support through research grants to cardiologists who have recently completed their training.

“This awards program is an investment in young researchers and the future of medical professionals who will be applying their talent to these innovative technologies to improve cardiac patient care,” said Laura King, GE Healthcare vice president and global general manager of interventional, cardiology and surgery.

The ACC Fellowship award program, while funded by GE, will be administered entirely by the ACC. The first class of Fellows will be named in the first quarter of 2005.

GE Healthcare is a Waukesha-based provider of medical imaging, point-of-care systems, health care services and information technology.
