Scholarship fund dedicated to Dr. Chen by grateful patient

A very grateful patient family recently started and dedicated an ongoing educational scholarship fund in honor of Dr. Jack Chen for saving his mother during her heart attack. It was a high-risk procedure, but the patient did beautifully. The fund will sponsor continuing education programs for cardiology and critical care nurses at Northside Hospital. Our practice and the Hospital are very appreciative of the generous donation.
Dr. Chen frequently lectures on interventional cardiology techniques and most recently was invited to lecture as Guest Faculty at the Transradial Training Conference at the University of Illinois in Chicago. He instructed physicians, nurses, and technologists on advanced techniques and presented the latest developments in transradial access for interventional cardiology (eg, angioplasty and stent implantation).
