Dr. Sheldon Goldgeier Award
To honor the memory of long-time board members and supporters, Dr. Sheldon Goldgeier and Mrs. Myra Goldgeier, the Foundation wishes to set aside one grant for pulmonary issues. Therefore, this RFP is also specifically soliciting proposals for a program particular to pulmonary and/or lung disease, i.e., but not limited to smoking cessation, emphysema, and chronic bronchitis. A high priority will be given to applications that reach these underserved populations.
