Annual Fund for Excellence

Chances are you know someone who suffers from cancer, diabetes, dementia, obesity or another challenging chronic disease.

Louisiana leads the nation in the number of residents battling certain chronic diseases.

With all medical science and technology have to offer, aren’t there better ways to treat—or even prevent­—these diseases? 

At Pennington Biomedical Research Center, scientists ask that same question every day.

Over the last 30 years, the Center’s scientists have made discoveries that have improved the way Americans exercise, eat and think about chronic disease.

Still, many questions remain about the triggers and treatment of chronic disease.

We need your help to find the answers.

Your financial support can make a difference now more than ever before.

Your gift to the Annual Fund for Excellence can fuel the exploration of new ideas, innovative techniques, and powerful technologies that not only benefit your friends and family at home, but millions of people worldwide.

The Annual Fund for Excellence is not limited by the development support fee, so your entire donation will go directly to funding scientific research that changes lives.
