Abby Czirr Physician Education Grant

A Physician Education Grant has been established in Memory of Abby Czirr. The grant will be used to pay for the expenses of a physician to travel to a multidisciplinary treatment center to learn about the latest information in the diagnosis and treatment of vascular birthmarks and tumors. If you are a physician and you are interested in applying for this grant, please print the application and mail it to: Dr. Linda Rozell-Shannon, VBF President/Founder, PO Box 106, Latham, NY, 12110. Include your CV. Please also list the multidisciplinary treatment centers where you would like to visit and the dates you would like to visit. You will also need to provide a letter from the center's director agreeing to host you for the training period. At the current time, we have funding for one grant. A committee will select the recipient after 5 applications have been received and reviewed. All recipients will be notified of the award after the committee has selected the recipient. Those who are not selected will be encouraged to resubmit for the next grant cycle. Current grant cycle is January 1 - March 31 each year. Awards will be made in April. Travel will be expected to commence between April and October. For more information, contact Dr. Linda at
