Father’s Day Council Tucson Endowed Chair for Type 1 Diabetes Research

Funding needed to complete the chair: $2 million
Amount raised as of 2014: Approximately $1.65 million

For nearly 20 years, Father’s Day Council Tucson (FDC) has supported improving the lives of children with type 1 diabetes.

FDC has made an ambitious commitment by establishing the Father’s Day Council Tucson Endowed Chair for Type 1 Diabetes.

The endowed chair will support type 1 diabetes training programs for medical students, residents, and fellows. In addition, post-doctoral fellows and graduate student researchers will receive support for their type 1 diabetes studies. And the endowment will enhance existing clinical programs and services at the Angel Wing for Children with Diabetes.

Once completed, the Father’s Day Council Tucson Endowed Chair for Type 1 Diabetes Research,  will enable Dr. Ghishan to recruit the highest caliber of scientist with expertise in pediatric endocrinolog to conduct type 1 diabetes research and oversee additional research projects at the Steele Center.
