UH school of medicine receives $196,000 award

Advertiser Staff

The University of Hawai'i John A. Burns School of Medicine has received $196,000 from the Freeman Foundation of New York and Stowe, Vt., to support international programs in medical education that strengthen friendship between the United States and Asia.

The foundation has an office at the East-West Center.

"This award helps to build and reinforce a network of medical schools in East Asia with ties to Hawai'i," said medical school dean Edwin Cadman. "If that network develops properly, it could eventually be a stimulus to joint projects in medical research and medical education."
