"Life is all about choices...we made the right choice."
In appreciation of the outstanding care he received at the Ohio State Ross Heart Hospital, Tom and his wife, Jennifer, decided to make a generous donation to Ohio State to directly benefit Dr. Raman's work in heart and vascular disease. Dr. Raman's primary research interest involves investigating early detection methods of heart and vascular problems, like Tom’s, to prevent larger issues and complications for patients in the future.
Tom describes the experience of giving back as enhancing his relationship with Dr. Raman, and he hopes that it will benefit other patients in the future.
"The confidence in what we do really helps energize me and my research team to strive higher and work harder," says Dr. Raman. With the resources that Tom and Jennifer have provided, her team has the ability to be more innovative and creative with their research to investigate underlying issues of heart and vascular disease.
