The Armenian General Benevolent Union recently made a $1 million gift in support of Jefferson’s Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Imaging and Treatment Center, led by Dr. Levon N. Nazarian, Professor of Radiology and Vice Chairman for Education in the Department of Radiology at Thomas Jefferson University.

Dr. Nazarian’s work using ultrasound to diagnose musculoskeletal disorders and guide minimally invasive treatments was in high demand and in serious need of expansion. Thanks to the support of the AGBU, Dr. Nazarian and the Center hired additional, needed staff and expanded clinical services for patients. This gift enabled Dr. Nazarian and the Center to provide better service to patients by significantly reducing waiting times. 

Jefferson was honored to welcome Carol Aslanian, AGBU Board Member, and Anita Anserian, AGBU Director of Central Board Programs, to campus last month to recognize their generous support.
