History of ARI
The Institute is named in honor of Norman H. Read, who established the Read Trust in 1985 and Nile L. Albright, MD, a trustee of the Read Trust. Mr. Read, an oil and gas executive who died in 1992, had a long history in Salem. Dr. Albright’s career has been devoted to research-based healthcare and science initiatives. Mr. Read and Dr. Albright were longtime colleagues and friends.
The Institute is funded through the continuing support of the Read Trust established in 1985 to enhance research-based healthcare for Salem-area residents and to support science education in Salem schools.
Since 1998, we have received more than $2 million from the Read Trust for research efforts across a range of specialties. More than 30 projects over these years have included research and publications in many areas including cardiac care and mental health.
The board of ARI includes our staff and representatives of the Norman H. Read Charitable Trust.
