Akron Children's research institute owes its inception to the vision of William and Rebecca Considine so we could form the foundation for a world-class pediatric research center located in northeast Ohio.
Their $1 million gift in 2009 represents the cornerstone of our efforts to improve diagnosis, prevention and treatment of medical conditions afflicting our nation’s most vulnerable citizens.
You can also nurture this growing enterprise with a gift of any amount. Every dollar plays an important role in overcoming diseases and conditions that endanger the hopes and dreams of children and their families everywhere in the world.
Investing in the health of children early in life will ameliorate not only the immediate health and economic burdens of pediatric illnesses and conditions, but also enhance that infant, child or adolescent’s well-being for decades to come.
Yet, because of barriers that prevent robust participation in clinical research, proven treatments for children are generally less available than for adults. For instance, there is meager information about many drugs approved for adults when used to treat childhood illnesses and conditions.
To help rectify this situation, the Rebecca D. Considine Research Institute serves as a catalyst to energize research addressing the countless unmet healthcare needs of infants, children and adolescents. Your generosity will accelerate our pursuit of the medical breakthroughs so vital to overcoming the challenges of research directed toward the health and welfare of our most cherished population.
It’s easy to invest in our nation’s future by caring for the health needs of today’s children. Donate now.
We rely on your generosity to provide quality medical care to every child who needs us.
