PACES Patrick Joyce Award

January 15, 2019
Please consider applying for the PACES Patrick Joyce Award. The deadline for application submission is Friday, February 15, 2019.

The fund is named for Patrick Joyce who suddenly died when he was in college. He and his family members were later diagnosed with Long QT syndrome. His friends and family host a 5K fun run and generously donate part of the proceeds to support PACES research. The PACES executive board and research committee will fund up to 3 allied professional members with interest and dedication to research to attend Heart Rhythm Scientific Sessions ($1500 for each) in order to present their research and gain experience and knowledge for research development for PACES allied professionals.

Awards will be for PACES allied professional members. Priority will be given to those who have submitted an abstract to HRS regardless if abstract gets accepted and who do not have financial support to attend the sessions. Research on long QT syndrome and other sudden death conditions will be considered favorably. We will also accept applications from PACES allied professional members who have not submitted research to HRS but who have demonstrated a commitment to research either independently or collaboratively.

Please refer to the Patrick Joyce Award application for the most up to date information. Email Vicki Freedenberg at with questions or to submit your application.

Best wishes,

Vicki Freedenberg
PACES Exec Board AP Representative
