The Gail Bell Memorial Fund

The Gail Bell Memorial Fund has been created to honor and remember Gail’s encouragement and support of data managers pursuing cardiac and thoracic surgery quality improvement.  The fund will recognize and partially sponsor one MSTCVS Data Manager per year wishing to attend the STS Advances in Quality & Outcomes (AQO) Meeting and submit an abstract for a potential poster presentation.  The winner will be selected at the MSTCVS Annual Summer Meeting.
