The CCAS Dolly D. Hansen, MD Educational Fund

Dr. Dolly D. Hansen, "the Mother of Pediatric Cardiac Anesthesia", devoted her entire career to the life of children with congenital heart disease (CHD).

When Dr. Dolly D. Hansen retired from BCH, she graciously donated funds for an endowed chair at Boston Children's Hospital. Dr. Hansen's wishes were that the funds would be utilized to conduct research, provide education to generations of professionals caring for CHD patients, and to improve the lives of patients with CHD.

It is fitting to honor Dolly's remarkable career and fulfill her wishes by establishing the Dr. Dolly D. Hansen Educational Fund. This Fund is intended to serve the educational mission of the Congenital Cardiac Anesthesia Society.
