Dr. Stephen M. Black is a Regents’ Professor at Georgia Regents University. When he is not completing groundbreaking medical research, he enjoys giving back to his local community. He recently participated in an event called “Doctors Who Cook,” which was held August 24, 2013 at the William B. Bell Auditorium in Augusta.

The Children’s Heart Program Volunteer Council (CHPVC), a 501(c)(3), offers family support and educational programs for parents and children affected by childhood heart disease. Family support volunteers help support parents of a child with heart disease or children needing heart surgery because these volunteers have been in the parents’ shoes. CHPVC also delivers financial support through programs that cover the cost of hospital visitation, educational seminars, scholarships, and medical research. The organization’s signature fundraiser, “Doctors Who Cook,” has provided funding for many family support needs since 1996, including:

  • Surgery therapeutic pillows
  • Life Alert bracelets
  • Patient scholarships
  • Thanksgiving Day meals at the hospital
  • Make-A-Wish Support
  • Ronald McDonald House Charities
  • Family Forum
