Meeting Partner Needs with Edwards’ Expertise: EHM Pro Bono Corps

Through our Every Heartbeat Matters (EHM) initiative, our partners—including Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, Pyxera Global, and the incredible medical team at Fort Apache Native American Indian Reservation—to launch the first-ever EHM Pro Bono Corps in Whiteriver, Arizona. As a part of this initiative, a dedicated group of Edwards employees is giving Edwards’ time and their talents in communication, clinical knowledge, economics and research to analyze opportunities for the Reservation to provide a cardiac echo screening program to all the residents of the community.  In June 2022, the team returned to the Reservation to continue their charitable work that began in 2021. We are excited to continue to identify potential opportunities to bring Edwards’ knowledge and expertise to our EHM partners and increase impact for the humanitarian patients they serve.
