The NEWS From Baltimore:
Our second century is off to a dynamic start

Hadassah's 96th National Business Meeting & Symposium, July 30 and 31 in Baltimore, will go down in Hadassah history as one of the organization's most productive—and enthusiastic—meetings ever.

Major programming initiatives, innovative and strategic, were officially launched, and powerful advocacy policy statements were passed. Learn about the Choose Where to Make Your Impact campaign, Every Beat Counts: Hadassah's Heart Health Program, Hadassah Leadership Fellows, and Hadassah's new policy statements.

Check out photos from the meeting and Save the Date for our 97th National Business Meeting, July 21-24, 2014, in fabulous Las Vegas.

Choose Where to Make Your Impact

Hadassah members, Associates and donors impact lives every day. Now you choose where to make your impact: Donate and select any of nine Hadassah Medical Organization's areas of expertise; help equip and furnish the state-of-the-art Sarah Wetsman Davidson Hospital Tower; support education and Jewish continuity through Young Judaea or Youth Aliyah; become a Life Member or impact someone's life through the gift of Life Membership; study, develop leadership skills, and advocate—for your health, for women, for Israel—through our U.S. Initiatives.

Every Beat Counts: Hadassah's Heart Health Program™

Heart disease is the #1 cause of death among women in the U.S. and worldwide, yet, up to 82% of heart disease is preventable. Women's symptoms are different from men's, and often go unrecognized. The Every Beat Counts program will educate women from coast to coast, informing them about heart healthy living, and the incredible care and research at HMO's Heart Insitute.

" Productive meetings in Baltimore and some fun too! Great to see all my Hadassah sisters!!"

Hadassah Leadership Fellows

The new Hadassah Leadership Fellows program is a selective two-year program designed to attract and develop the next generation of Hadassah leadership and to participate in Impact Boards related to specific areas of interest: women's health and medical research, venture capitalism, public policy, and social justice.

The program will involve missions to Washington D.C. and Israel, seminars on topics related to the Impact Boards, skills development, and will concentrate on the institutionalization of leadership in order to ensure long-term commitment and involvement in the organization's future.

This week, Hadassah, recognizes the 20th anniversary of the implementation of the Family and Medical Leave Act and urges Congress to expand paid leave opportunities for American workers.
