ALS INDUSTRY PARTNERS’ AWARDS

BACKGROUND

To recap ‘Support an ALS Trainee’ is a scheme whereby we ask consultants, each year, to donate £10 each towards ‘Support an ALS Trainee’ on the ALS conference registration form. Whatever amount is collected the ALS Industry Partners increase this figure by a factor of 10. This year the beneficiaries are all registered trainee presenters of the Free Papers. All Trainees have been granted an award of £300 each.
*registered for the ALS ASM 2012

The ALS Industry Partners who have supported this worthwhile cause are:
B.Braun, Elemental Healthcare, Ethicon Endo-Surgery, Fisher & Paykel Healthcare Ltd, Lotus SRA & Karl Storz.
