Eagles, Iowa Formalize Bridge To The Cure Project

On Tuesday, October 30, The Fraternal Order of Eagles (F.O.E.) Board of Grand Trustees met with leadership from the University of Iowa to formalize the F.O.E.'s Bridge to the Cure project, which aims to translate research projects at the F.O.E. Diabetes Research Center into new medications to help alleviate the effects of diabetes.

With the new agreement, the F.O.E. Diabetes Research Center staff, led by Director Dr. E. Dale Abel, will form a committee, including one Eagles member, to recommend research projects for trial drug testing. Once a recommendation is made, it will be passed along to the F.O.E.'s Board of Grand Trustees, who will determine whether or not to issue a grant from the F.O.E. Diabetes Research Center Fund to facilitate the trials.
