S. Adil Husain, M.D., and his wife, Rebecca Husain, have established an endowment to fund study and travel for cardiothoracic surgical fellows and pediatric residents. The Husain Family Educational Fund in Pediatric and Adult Cardiovascular Disease was funded by an initial $15,000 gift, with an additional $30,000 to be given over the next two years.
Gifts boost pediatric transplant program
Three recent gifts to the pediatric transplant program at San Antonio’s University Transplant Center will help create a National Center for Excellence in pediatric liver transplantation, grow an already renowned pediatric kidney transplant program and improve access to services for patients along the Texas-Mexico border.
Building A Strong Foundation
With several million dollars in new gifts, momentum continues to grow for the Biggs Institute for Alzheimer and Neurodegenerative Diseases launched in September. The institute honors the memory of Glenn Biggs, the San Antonio philanthropist who was the founding chairman of the Health Science Center Development Board. Mr. Biggs, who died last May, had a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease.
