Grant Programs

Health Awareness

We support organizations whose missions are to improve public awareness of cardiac and chronic pain conditions and device therapies that can change people's lives.

Advancing the State of Medical Knowledge

We support education, research and training programs that advance the practice of medicine. Our goal is to make life better for future generations.

Community

We enhance life and the vitality of the communities where we live, particularly through contributions in the human services, civic and cultural arenas where a specific tie-in to cardiac and chronic pain conditions is possible.
