Robert Lisak, M.D., F.A.A.N., F.R.C.P., professor of Neurology and of Immunology and Microbiology for the Wayne State University School of Medicine, was recently re-elected to the DMC Foundation’s Board of Directors.
This will be Dr. Lisak’s second three-year term on the board.
Formerly known as the Health & Wellness Foundation, the DMC Foundation was created in 2010 to receive part of the charitable assets transferred from the Detroit Medical Center following its sale to Vanguard Health Systems, which became a part of Tenet Healthcare Corp. in October 2013.
The foundation, which has awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants, is dedicated to promoting the well-being of the general public in the metropolitan Detroit area through the support of health-related research, education and community benefit activities.
The organization is overseen by a 15-member board.
