We are grateful to our dear friend Marianne Cahalan for her generosity in making a $1,000,000.00 gift to honor her husband and our former chair Dr. Mike Cahalan.
This donation is the largest gift from a single donor the Department of Anesthesiology has ever received. The money will go into an account called the Michael K Cahalan Research and Education Fund in Anesthesiology. The proceeds from this account will support intra-departmental research and education activities in perpetuity.
The endowment constitutes an enduring approach to honoring the legacy of Dr. Cahalan. Going forward, countless faculty, fellows, and residents will benefit by tapping into this fund to support their projects, many of which will eventually mature to the point of attracting extramural funding.
