Bryn Mawr Hospital’s Pennypacker Auditorium was the setting on March 15
of a special Medicine Grand Rounds featuring the second annual Joseph
A. Wagner, MD Memorial Lecture. Dr. Howard Eisen, chief
of the Division of Cardiology at Drexel University College of
Medicine/Hahnemann University Hospital, presented The
Management of Advanced Heart Failure in the 21st Century. A
leading expert in his field, Dr. Eisen has cared for almost 1,000 heart
transplant patients, making him one of the most experienced transplant
cardiologists in the world.
The Joseph A. Wagner, MD Cardiac Education Endowment Fund was
established in 2004 by Dr. Wagner’s widow, Bernice, and her three sons,
Theodore, Robert and Jeffrey. It was Bernice and her sons’ desire to
honor their husband and father’s memory by creating a perpetual legacy
to support continuing medical education in cardiology at Bryn Mawr
Hospital. Numerous memorial gifts from members of the Wagner family,
former colleagues and friends have augmented the Fund’s principal, which
hopefully will continue to grow. Additional gifts may be made to the
Fund at any time. Distributions from the Wagner Endowment will fund this
lecture series on an annual basis.
