A million thanks to the Westman Charitable Foundation



























Westman Foundation's Diana (Joseph) Westman and her brother, Jay Westman, CEO and chairman, Jayman Built.

Thanks for the Westman Charitable Foundation, researches studying the progression of multiple sclerosis (MS) at the U of C will be able to investigate new treatment options for the rarest form of the disease.

A $1 million gift from  Foundation announced May 20 will support the Multiple Sclerosis Translational Clinical Trials Research Program at the Cumming School of Medicine’s Hotchkiss Brain Institute (HBI).

“This gift, coming from highly-respected community leaders and friends of the University of Calgary, will allow the HBI to build on its strengths in brain and mental health, specifically excellence within MS,” said U of C president Dr. Elizabeth Cannon. “We are proud to partner with Jay Westman and Diana Joseph of the Westman Charitable Foundation, in supporting this key area of research.” she added.

This impressive donation marked the launch of the Westman Charitable Foundation, led by Jayman BUILT chairman and CEO, Jay Westman and his sister Diana.

“The vision of the Westman Charitable Foundation is to build a better tomorrow for Albertans through health, education and shelter,” said president Diana Joseph.

The Multiple Sclerosis Translational Clinical Trials Research Program will allow researchers to rapidly translate lab findings to a pilot clinical trial and beyond, determining if new medications aid in the treatment of MS. Clinical trials will investigate three drugs, as well as another related to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as part of treatment. Patients with progressive MS will be able to take part in trials, undergoing new therapy when they might not otherwise have access to medications for their condition.
