Join Richmond Hadassah on May 4, 2014, as we honor
Dr. William Moskowitz
Elinor Bloom Marshall Humanitarian Award
On May 4, 2014, at the Jepson Alumni Center on the University of Richmond campus, Dr. William Moskowitz will be honored with the Elinor Bloom Marshall Humanitarian Award, presented by Richmond Hadassah and Children's Hospital of Richmond at VCU. He will receive this accolade in recognition of his kind and compassionate manor in combination with his fierce devotion to his work and his young patients.
Dr. Moskowitz is the associate professor of Pediatrics, Director of Pediatric Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory and director of Pediatric Heart/Lung Transplantation at VCU/MCV. He is an active member in the Richmond-based World Pediatric Project, and a founder of Mended Little Hearts, Virginia Chapter. Additionally, Dr. Moskowitz is a long-time Associate member of Hadassah, and has participated in many Hadassah programs including Every Beat Counts, Hadassah’s new Heart Health Initiative. Dr. Moskowitz has also visited Hadassah Hospital in Israel both in a personal and professional capacity. He is married to Gail Moskowitz, a past president of Sabra Hadassah and incoming President for the Southern Seaboard Region of Hadassah.
Elinor Bloom Marshall was a true Renaissance woman and humanitarian. She was a tireless community volunteer, a distinguished and accomplished businesswoman, a consummate musician and the matriarch of a large family. She also served on the Advisory Board of Massey Cancer Center of the Medical College of Virginia. She was devoted not only to her family and friends, of which she had many, but also was the epitome of humanitarianism. Her passing in 2010 left a huge hole in Richmond area Hadassah and the Richmond-Petersburg community at large. So it was decided that her legacy would best be preserved with a humanitarian award in her honor. Two years ago, posthumously, she was the first recipient of the Elinor Bloom Marshall Humanitarian Award.
