In honor of Dr. Fayez K. Ghishan’s 25th anniversary as director of the University of Arizona Steele Children’s Research Center the members of the Phoenix Women’s Board of the Steele Children’s Research Center, known as PANDA, have presented Dr. Ghishan with a five-million-dollar endowment in his name. The Fayez K. Ghishan, MD PANDA Endowed Directorship will provide support to further pediatric research and leadership at the Steele Children’s Research Center and allow the continuation of Dr. Ghishan’s life’s work of researching, improving treatments, and curing childhood diseases.
“Dr. Ghishan’s achievements in pediatrics have transformed the lives of children and their families, and this is well-deserved recognition of his important work,” said University of Arizona President Robert C. Robbins. “This endowment will play an essential role in continuing this research and training of future pediatricians at the Steele Children’s Research Center. I am incredibly grateful for the extraordinary support from PANDA and donors around the state that made this possible.”
The Steele Children’s Research Center and Dr. Ghishan thank PANDA for everything they do for the children in our state and across the globe!
