The Forem is a 501c3 non-profit foundation. It performs high level clinical and bench research and provides free educational seminars. It is largely funded by Dr Prodromos personally but depends on outside donations to maintain the extensive research studies underway, with a patient cohort now numbering about 4000 treatments.

All donations are fully tax deductible and 100% of donations fund research and education. Donations primarily help defray the salaries of the five research associates of The Forem as well as some other research expenses. Dr. Prodromos does not take a salary for his research activities.

Donations may be mailed to: The Forem, 1714 Milwaukee Ave., Glenview, Il. 60025. Attention Sue Finkle RN. She may be contacted with questions at or 847-699-6810 x207.
