The Rush-Copley Fox Valley Heart Endowment Fund supports the mission of the Rush-Copley Foundation as it relates to the Fox Valley Heart Fund.
The Fox Valley Heart Fund was organized in 2004 to promote cardiovascular health while reducing gender and economic disparity.
The organization focuses on increasing awareness and education through community outreach programs and public workshops related to cardiovascular risk reduction topics.
Additionally, the Fund continues its ongoing initiatives which include: providing screening and risk assessments for patients in the Fox Valley area, hosting the Annual Women and Heart Disease Symposium, supporting the efforts of Heart Sisters, and awarding scholarships to local nursing students each year to help them achieve their educational goals.
Interventional cardiologist and Fox Valley Heart Fund founder, Santosh Gill, M.D. continues to be the driving force behind the mission and work of the Foundation. Her endless energy and tireless efforts have been inspiring and resulted in numerous ongoing collaborations throughout the community.
Recently, her dream of creating a clinic for the community’s underserved was realized with the opening of the Aurora Community Heart Clinic in Aurora.
