Geschichte der Stiftung

Die Gründung der Jean-Uhrmacher-Stiftung (JUS) erfolgte im Jahre 1978 durch Frau Hildegard Uhrmacher, die ihren Ehemann, Jean Uhrmacher, im Jahre 1971 durch die Folgen einer schweren Erkrankung im HNO-Bereich verlor. Noch zu Lebzeiten Herrn Uhrmachers entstand aus dessen persönlicher Betroffenheit heraus der Wunsch, die klinische HNO-Forschung finanziell zu unterstützen.
