Dr. Michael E. Edwards, an interventional radiologist with Imaging Associates of North Mississippi in Corinth, and wife Sherri Edwards donated $1 million to the Society of Interventional Radiology Foundation. The money is to be used to create a scholarship fund dedicated to training interventional radiology fellows with an interest in research.

The scholarship will help secure the future of interventional radiology by attracting talented clinicians to the field, said Dr. Michael D. Darcy, SIR Foundation chair and chief of interventional radiology at Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology in St. Louis.

Parallel to the endowment announcement, the foundation launched a new website (www.sirfoundation.org/donate/) to make it easier for donors to make contributions.
