Donate to the Patient Safety Education & Research Fund

The Society for Pediatric Anesthesia is pleased to announce the availability of young investigator research grants through the Patient Safety, Education and Research Fund (PSERF). The young investigator research grants are one year, renewable grants awarded at the discretion of the Research Grant Committee.

Our goal is to raise pledges in support of advancing pediatric anesthesia safety efforts. Specifically, your support would allow $100,000 annually to support pediatric anesthesia safety research. The SPA will commit to reporting the results of this research to the membership.

We have annual pledges from the current officers and board members, as well as many of our past presidents and former board members.

Any amount of support, large or small, will be accepted and we hope that you will support this worthy cause at ANY level. Children are rarely seen as driving “market share,” so our support to advance safety in pediatric anesthesia is critical.

Thank you for your consideration of our request. If you have any questions, please contact Kim Battle, SPA Association Manager, at, or one of your Directors.

Thank you.
