The official foundation of the American Urological Association (AUA) has a new name — the Urology Care Foundation. The new name emphasizes the core of the Foundation’s commitment to advancing urologic research and education to improve patients’ lives. Although the Foundation has a new name, we have a long history. The Foundation’s Research Scholars Program has supported young urology researchers for more than 35 years. Since becoming the official foundation of the AUA in 1987, the Foundation has been uniquely positioned to draw on the resources and professional expertise of AUA members, ensuring the quality and integrity of our programs. The Foundation’s research grant and fellowship awardees receive more than funding, they also benefit from training and mentorship with AUA members. Meanwhile, the Foundation offers the public the most accurate and current urologic health information. Thanks to collaboration with the AUA, the Foundation’s patient education materials are based on the integrity of the AUA Clinical Guidelines. Today the Urology Care Foundation continues to be a dedicated leader in advancing urologic research and education to improve patients’ lives.
