Leadership Circle, a Phoenix Children’s Foundation giving group that invests in innovative, high-impact projects, has awarded three grants to fund the groundbreaking work of Phoenix Children’s physicians and researchers.

At the group’s annual luncheon, held May 4 and hosted by Robert “Bob” Meyer, president and CEO of Phoenix Children’s, and Rachel McNeill, contributing anchor at 12 News KPNX Phoenix, the 2022 finalists presented their cases for support to Leadership Circle members, who then voted on which projects to fund.

“The presentations gave us a glimpse into the transformative innovation taking place at Phoenix Children’s,” said Dana Jirauch, senior director of philanthropy at Phoenix Children’s Foundation. “The projects proposed by our finalists are proof that Phoenix Children’s truly is shaping the future of pediatric medicine.”
