Greater Gift

Greater Gift

Magnitude of Gratitude

Thanks to a donation by Aurora Research Institute on behalf of research participants at Aurora Health Care, Greater Gift will provide vaccines to children in need. Because you are doing something important to help others, we wanted to do the same.


Celebrating Research Participants

People who participate in research often receive no benefit for their contribution while their selfless act benefits the greater good in the form of new drugs, treatments and techniques that improve countless lives.

To celebrate this contribution, we have made a donation on behalf of research participants at Aurora Health Care to Greater Gift, which provides vaccines to children in need worldwide through Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance.

New Aurora research participants will receive a certificate acknowledging our heartfelt appreciation for furthering our mission to help people live well through innovative research.

Patient Story

Julie's Story

Julie knew something was wrong when she felt tightness in her chest, was more tired and ran out of breath when exerting herself. It was because some of the blood in her heart wasn’t flowing the right way due to a faulty valve. She enrolled in a clinical trial studying a potentially new approach to replace the mitral valve. Watch her story.
