Medicine Association (NEMA)
NEMA makes grants with an emphasis on cardiac-related clinical and applied research, wellness education programs and trauma support services. NEMA works with other non-profit organizations through its special programs, National Heart Council and National Stroke Council. Numerous grants have provided essential funding to physicians, health clinics, trauma centers and hospital heart centers, like St. Agnes' Hospital Coronary Care Unit in Catonsville, Maryland.
St. Agnes' Coronary Care Unit was the first of its kind in the US and became a model for 30% of Hospitals operating nationwide.
NEMA also contributed funds to the country's first shock trauma unit, the Cowley Shock Trauma Center at the University of Maryland in Baltimore, Maryland. Cowley is a model for all designated shock trauma units nationally.
NEMA programs also support other areas of trauma prevention and emergency medical services for individuals of all ages, living in every area of the US.
