LOS ANGELES, CA, November 19, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Everest Foundation was started in honor of the late Dr. Everest, a distinguished doctor, and educator. It operates under the leadership of Dr. Michael Everest and Agata Everest, who are committed to ensuring that the organization achieves its vision.
It funds innovative medical research initiatives critical to medical innovation and affordable healthcare. It invests in global initiatives such as higher learning and research grants.
The foundation also runs medical residency training programs. The foundation is committed to Graduate Medical Education. It partners with various medical schools to provide training opportunities to medical graduates.
It supports poor populations where people cannot access primary healthcare. In these countries, it is estimated that 2 million children succumb to an array of treatable diseases such as diarrhea and pneumonia.
The Everest Foundation is keen on alleviating suffering in vulnerable communities worldwide. More importantly, the foundation engages in venture philanthropy funding various charity initiatives in their areas and contributing to medical research.
It also places medical residents in underserved communities so that the population can get direct medical care.
Some medical specialties they study and support include internal medicine, Cardiology, Oncology, in-vitro fertilization, Gastrointestinal, Obstetrics, Pathology, Reproductive research, Gynecology, Opiates Addiction, Neurology, Psychiatry, and Infectious Diseases, among others.
It places a lot of emphasis on IDDM and Cardiac research. The Everest Foundation supports US medical research scholars, and some notable people have contributed significantly to medical research through the foundation's help.
Agata Everest Supporting The Everest Foundation Scholars
Dr. Patel, a medical scholar and a research fellow, has done outstanding research on Opioid use. Dr. Patel notes that it is essential to ensure proper stewardship when prescribing opioids.
She notes that a medical professional needs to prescribe the right opioids, the right dose of opioids, and for correct length. Incorrect prescriptions can negatively interfere with recovery and cause severe side effects.
The Everest Foundation funded Dr. Patel's research initiative and provided her with the necessary medical equipment to carry out the research.
Dr. Ramalingam has also researched "clinicians-based paracentesis VS interventional radiology paracentesis." Paracentesis is the perforation of a cyst or body part to diagnose an infection.
Medical scholars have divergent views on the more effective procedure for paracentesis between interventional and clinical-based radiology. Dr. Ramalingam took the trouble to research more about these two types of paracentesis.
It is ongoing research that uses an evidence-based approach and clinical tests. It will help the medical fraternity know the more effective type of paracentesis based on the clinical outcomes.
Agata Everest and the Everest Foundation are offering immense support to help her go about the research.
Another scholar that has been a beneficiary of the foundation is Dr. Obamiro. Dr. Obamiro has researched changing trends in orthopedic services due to the Covid 19 pandemic.
According to Dr. Obamiro, Covid 19 has changed how orthopedic care is given because of massive changes in the frequency of admissions and changing lifestyles. The research examines how the pandemic has affected planning, care, and preventive education.
Circumstances have compelled doctors and patients to change how they operate to keep human contact at a minimum.
To reduce the spread of Covid 19, some health facilities have introduced telehealth whereby patients can receive treatment from home using telemedicine technologies.
This is just one example of how orthopedic services have changed. Agata Everest and the Everest Foundation are glad to help Dr. Obamiro with her research, publication, and ultimately achieving a medical residency placement.
