A Letter From Dr. Kar
As a practicing cardiologist, what strikes me most is the tremendous shortfall in our community’s level of disease prevention awareness. Heart disease continues to be the leading cause of illness and death, resulting in escalating health care costs and financial devastations to families in the face of our struggling economy. The only way we can ensure a productive and prosperous people is by disease prevention.
My dream is to empower people by making advances in health education for individuals and for the greater populace. The Sheila Kar Health Foundation
has been established for just this purpose: nurturing good health practices and disease prevention through education.
a non-profit organization founded in 2007 whose mission is to improve our community’s health by spreading and promoting education about good health practices and disease prevention.
The Foundation focuses on giving through:
1. Annual Valentine’s Day Heart Protection Seminar.
2. Annual Grants and Scholarships.
To outstanding high school students who have exhibited excellence in science projects, and will be pursuing a field related to health and education grants to community college students towards their books.
3. Sponsoring Life Saving Therapies
for those who are in need but cannot afford it.
4. Donation of Life Saving Equipment
to underserved clinics or individuals.
I am very grateful and indebted to you, my community and extended family. Without your needs, ideas, support, inspiration and generosity The Sheila Kar Health Foundation
would not exist.
