Robert M. Sinskey Foundation supports CSPAR

Department news | December 28, 2021

The Center for Suicide Prevention and Recovery (CSPAR) led by Kate Comtois, PhD, MPH, has received a generous gift from the Robert M. Sinskey Foundation to support its work. The Center, launched in 2020, will hire an administrative assistant, redesign its website, build an online library of trainings and plan additional trainings with the funding. The family foundation heard about CSPAR’s work through a Grand Rounds presentation given by Dr. Comtois about the Center earlier this year.

“Having someone dedicated to CSPAR as an entity will be a game changer for the Center,” said Dr. Comtois. “The seed money will help us create a strong administrative structure to support and expand our collaborative efforts and get important research off the ground.”

The mission of the Robert M. Sinskey Foundation is to advance medical science and improve the quality of medical care throughout the world by supporting education, scholarship, medical and scientific research and clinical activities. We appreciate their support!
