CSP News

Priority-setting during a season of giving.b> We are ever-grateful for the generous support that the CSP receives from so many donors, through the efforts of the SBH Foundation. Those donations have provided new equipment for the ORs, labs and clinics and have supported research initiatives across our community. To help us better advise the Foundation in setting fundraising priorities for CSP initiatives we will be maintaining a priority list for fundraising. That list will be evergreen and be based on the ongoing submission of requests from members of the Cardiac Sciences community. The form is appended. There is no deadline for these submissions nor any dollar minimum or maximum (i.e. from the thousands of $ to hundreds of thousands of $).

Let me know if you have any questions about this process, one which I hope will increase support for CSP-wide initiatives from the SBH Foundation.
