A Day for Ali 2018 Kick Off
THE ALI SACCO MEMORIAL FUND
BETA ALPHA PSI kicks off the 2018 Campaign with "A DAY FOR ALI"
Welcome to the 14th year of the Ali Sacco Memorial Fund!
We are excited to announce the 3rd Annual “Day for Ali” on February 21, 2017 hosted by the Uri Chapter of Alpha Beta Psi in the Atrium of Ballentine Hall, the College of Business.
Ali was born with a rare and complicated congenital heart defect. Through the dedication of Boston Children’s Hospital and their “cutting edge” research she and her family were gifted with 16 years of a normal childhood. While they lost her too soon, Ali lived very well and they would like to continue to do their small part in giving other families hope. This becomes even more important as the landscape of healthcare changes.
The proceeds of the fund and its events support three initiatives: a program that supports a network of Pediatric Cardiology Departments around New England, the Cardiology Fellows Retreat and most notably, the Ali Sacco Internship. These programs are supervised directly by Catherine Allan, MD, is the associate program director of SIMPeds, Boston Children’s Hospital Simulator Program and the medical director of the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU). Formerly, Audrey Marshall, MD, Associate Chief of Clinical Affairs, Chief of Invasive Cardiologist at Boston Children’s Hospital, and Professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School was the Director for 13 years. She is currently the Chief of Cardiology at Tufts Floating Children's Hospital in Boston. Both of these amazing, accomplished women have been devoted to Ali and her fund for 20 years.
It's our hope to continue to grow these events and honor Ali's legacy. To that end, we ask for your continued support. We are looking forward to hosting another successful event!
We hope you’ll be able to support “ Day for Ali ”. Please know that every donation will be greatly appreciated. All proceeds from the event go directly to the Cardiology Department “Until every child is well.” Should you have any questions please contact Ann-Marie Sacco at email@example.com.
