The Jayne Koskinas Ted Giovanis Foundation for Health and Policy (JKTG Foundation) funds cancer research, policy projects, and events that foster public discussion to improve the quality-of-care patients experience.

In 2022, JKTG Foundation work focuses on rethinking health care quality, emerging cancer research, and uses for real-world evidence. Of particular interest is building collaboration by fostering multi-institutional and multi-disciplinary research in the area of breast cancer metastasis.

The JKTG Foundation is honored to be supported by Team TGM, a championship-winning race team that competes in the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge.
