The mission of the James E. Newby Jr. MD Foundation

To improve the health and welfare of the various communities within the Commonwealth of Virginia and its citizens. The foundation will concentrate on four areas:

  • Promote research focusing on heart disease, dysmetabolic syndrome and other related chronic health conditions that are prevalent in Virginia.
  • To improve the support systems for citizens in Virginia in general with emphasis on those with heart disease and those with chronic related conditions.
  • Through education, teach those members of the public who have been negatively affected by tobacco use, hypertension, diabetes, obesity, stroke and other chronic heart related illnesses how to alter, reverse, or otherwise improve long term outcome thus raising the public’s awareness of complications associated with these conditions.
  • Address other issues not exclusive to healthcare which may adversely affect the community.
