On March 10, 2010, Abbott Laboratories announced it will sponsor McGill University's Nurse Practitioner programs launched by the School of Nursing of the Faculty of Medicine.

Jeff Devlin, General Manager, Abbott International, Canada says: "Nurses and nurse practitioners comprise an essential component of our health care system. They play an extremely important role in the lives of Canandian patients. We must support their development to improve health care delivery."

Abbott's donation will be directed toward recruiting nurse practitioners and physicians to supervise students, updating course materials, improving learning lab environments, and making valuable training opportunities available.

Abbott is a global, broad-based health care company devoted to discovery, development, manufacture and marketing of pharmaceuticals and medical products, including nutritionals, devices and diagnostics.
