The Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons (SLS) Education Research Fund has been developed to support SLS educational programs. Donations can be made in honor of a luminary in the field of Minimally Invasive Surgery or towards a specific area of interest in the field.
To date, the SLS Education Research Fund has accepted donations in honor of Dr. Harrith H. Hasson and Dr. Carl J. Levinson - both Dr. Hasson and Dr. Levinson were long standing members of SLS. SLS had the honor of having each of them serve as Presidents of the Society and both received the Excel Award, which is given "to a surgeon who has made outstanding contributions to laparoendoscopy and minimally invasive surgery".
We welcome direct donations or please feel free to make a donation in honor of your favorite person. You can indicate this in the comment section below. These funds will go towards educational programs with a focus on minimally invasive surgical training, techniques, and instruments.
To make a donation via credit card, please use this donation form. Donations can also be made by mailing a check to "SLS" or "The Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons" with "Education Research Fund" and the name of the individual who you would like to honor in the memo line to:
