STS News, Summer 2020 — Innovation, knowledge, research, patient care—these principles lie at the forefront of The Thoracic Surgery Foundation (TSF) mission.
“The mission of the Foundation is so important. The first part is to develop cardiothoracic surgeon-scientists. They will be the investigators who help us better understand the causes of and treatments for cardiothoracic disease,” explained TSF Board Member Scott A. LeMaire, MD. “The second part of the mission is to provide better patient care. In order for us to deliver better care in the future, it is important to support the people who are in training now and their ongoing research efforts.”
