BDOU Receives Swedish Community Impact Award
On November 1, 2022, Bergman Draper Oslund Udo was presented with the Swedish Community Impact Award for their ongoing support of the Swedish Thoracic Surgery Fellowship program. BDOU is proud to be recognized by Swedish and continues to value the ongoing partnership they have formed with the incredible care team in the Swedish Thoracic Surgery group.
BDOU’s support of the thoracic surgery fellowship program allows the Swedish team to train the next generation of thoracic surgeons. Most of the fellows who join this research program are finishing up general surgery training with the goal of moving on to thoracic surgery training. This program not only benefits BDOU clients but also other individuals in our community who are suffering from thoracic health conditions.
BDOU attorneys gathered with the Swedish Thoracic Team at the Swedish Foundation event in Seattle and had the opportunity to hear updates on the research being performed at Swedish and get updates from two of the current fellows in the program.
“We are so impressed by the knowledge and skill of the Swedish Thoracic Surgery team. We are incredibly proud to support the world-class care and treatment that they provide mesothelioma victims,” said BDOU partner, Vanessa Oslund.
For BDOU attorneys, their gift to Swedish over the years is seen as another way to continue to support and take care of their clients. Founding attorney, Matt Bergman, has forged a strong relationship with Eric Vallieres, M.D., and his team of surgeons at Swedish. “When we learned of this opportunity years ago to support this program, we embraced the chance to further support our clients. We are honored to receive the Swedish Community Impact Award and look forward to a meaningful partnership in the future,” said Matt Bergman, founding attorney at Bergman Draper Oslund Udo.
