We’re incredibly thrilled to announce that CARF has received a major gift donation of shares from Dr. James Beckstead and his wife. The donation will be used to create an endowment fund that will fully support an award in Ambulatory Research in his name.
Dr. Beckstead served as a Treasurer for the Canadian Anesthesiologists’ Society (CAS) for 5 years, and is a committed and dedicated leader in the anesthesia community.
“Over my 42 year career as a clinical anesthesiologist, I have seen tremendous advances in the practice of anesthesia. These changes have been the result of the tedious process of ongoing research. I am pleased to support CARF and the young investigators that they in turn support. Research is the future and at a time when other funding sources are scarce, it is important that we support our speciality through CARF”, Dr. Beckstead writes.
We thank Dr. Beckstead and his wife for this generous donation that will help transform the future of anesthesia research in Canada. To learn more about how to donate stocks and shares, please send us an email or connect with us on social media.
