The ACS Foundation has initiatives to support areas such as surgical research, education, rural surgery, trauma, and more, all in order to ultimately promote better patient outcomes. Your support matters.
The ACS Foundation raises money for surgical research, scholarships, fellowships, and philanthropic programs. It was established in 2005 and offers a wide spectrum of funding opportunities for ACS members and others to help ensure the highest level of care for the surgical patient.
Philanthropy is a family affair for these father-son surgeons. Together with their spouses—Janelle Duremdes, MD, and Mary Duremdes, RN—they are sponsoring the Duremdes Family Travel Award, an ACS fund that provides international physicians, specifically Filipino surgeons, with the opportunity to attend and participate in Clinical Congress.
