AMSECT ANNOUNCES RECIPIENTS OF THE 2021 SPECIALTYCARE MEDICAL MISSION FUND
Three students will receive the $25,000 endowment donation from SpecialtyCare, and this fund will go directly towards the remuneration for airfare and lodging towards a medical mission of their choice.
Earlier this year, we announced, in honor of Al Stammers receiving The John H. Gibbon Jr. Award, a partnership with AmSECT to launch the SpecialtyCare Medical Mission Fund that will provide an endowment to support perfusionists wishing to travel abroad for medical missions. AmSECT and SpecialtyCare believe in both the continued innovation of the field and the professional needs of extracorporeal technology here and abroad.
AmSECT will administer the $25,000 endowment donation from SpecialtyCare, and this fund will go directly towards the remuneration for airfare and lodging. Unlike other mission funds and scholarships that are often awarded to students, the SpecialtyCare Medical Mission Fund will be offered to practicing perfusionists who desire the opportunity to share their skills abroad with those in need.
The 2021 recipients of the SpecialtyCare Medical Mission Fund include:
- Johnson Anthony (Vincent Obioma Ohaju Memorial [VOOM] Foundation)
- Allyson Aquino (VOOM Foundation)
- Audrey Barba (Gift of Life International)
