Checking on Myocarditis Research 

In February 2016, Vern and Dawna Poyner presented a check from the Matthew Vernon Poyner Memorial Foundation to cardiologist Stuart Russell. The gift established a fund in memory of the Poyners’ son, with the purpose of advancing research of myocarditis—inflammation of the middle layer of the heart wall—in the Division of Cardiology at Johns Hopkins.
