Patient Care

UVA leverages technology to keep patients out of the hospital and in the place they most want to be—their homes. A gift to patient care expands the ways we offer compassionate care to patients and their families.

Education

UVA's heart and vascular medicine faculty are committed to sharing their knowledge with medical and nursing students, as well as young doctors. Philanthropy is a critical component of medical education.
