From our President
Dear Hadassah Sisters,
It has been an eventful few months for all of us in the Florida Atlantic Region. On December 1st, our 2017 Region Board was installed at the South County Civic Center, after a beautiful Rosh Hodesh program sponsored by the Gan Eden Chapter. On December 6th, over 300 of our members attended the World Stem Cell Summit at the Palm Beach County Convention Center. We heard an informative keynote presentation by Professor Dimitrios Karussis on his stem cell research in multiple sclerosis and heard from his patient, Malia Litman on her miraculous results from the treatment. In the afternoon, Professor Karussis and Maila were joined by Dr. Raphael Gorodetsky from the Sharett Institute of Oncology and patient, Stuart Greenberg and took part in a private, Q&A session for all of our Hadassah members. We were informed and inspired by all of the breakthroughs happening at our hospitals in Israel.
In December and January we will hold our annual workshops for all incoming and ongoing Chapter Boards. See the schedule here on the website for more information.
I am looking forward to an exciting year to share will all of you.
