SIU Medicine, Springfield Memorial Foundation announce Endowed Chair of Urology
SIU School of Medicine and Springfield Memorial Foundation are pleased to announce the creation of the Frank and Linda Vala Endowed Chair of Urology. The endowed chair was made possible by Frank J. Vala and his wife, Linda Vala. Proceeds from the endowment will support this position in perpetuity, allowing current and subsequent urology division chiefs to support research in this critical discipline.
“Frank and Linda have honored us with their extraordinary generosity to SIU Urology and its future by providing this wonderful gift to support research,” said inaugural honoree Bradley Schwartz, DO, professor and chief of the Division of Urology. “Their positive impact will continue for generations to come. We are grateful beyond words.”
