2020 Annual Report | A Year for Fellowship, Engagement, and Growth
“In a year where collaboration seemed impossible, our teams engineered new ways to work together, and internal and external partnerships reached new heights. Our foundation has never been stronger as we remain steadfast in our collective commitment to push the boundaries of discovery for the millions of patients suffering from cardiovascular disease around the world today. As we look forward to returning to in-person collaboration, we are deeply grateful for the decades of support from our local, national, and global community. ” Eric D. Wade, Chairman, THI Board of Trustees
