Four New CIM Scholars Announced

This month, the International Advisory Board of the Center for Innovative Medicine (CIM) announced four new CIM Scholars. CIM Scholars are backed by extraordinarily generous donors of the Center for Innovative Medicine by supporting people who have the potential to make significant contributions to one or more of three areas: (1) training great physicians and nurses; (2) advancing precision medicine; and (3) supporting medicine for the greater good.
