What We Do

Our strategy is simple: Focus on compelling frontiers of treatment and clinical areas of urgent patient need. Our research model is unparalleled: Work in concert with nationally-ranked Minneapolis Heart Institute® cardiologists at Abbott Northwestern Hospital. Our outcomes are patient-centered: Apply research learning to clinical practice, producing more life-saving treatment options.

What a Sponsorship Supports

In addition to a wonderful evening with your friends and colleagues, the gala is an opportunity to celebrate and recognize the successes of the organization while sharing new information to members of the Twin Cities community. Funds raised through Gala sponsorships and tickets directly support the research and education programs at the Foundation.


These contributions result in ever-improving solutions that enable people in our community to live longer and healthier lives.
