Spouses, partners and significant others are welcome to attend. Special guest speaker is Dr. Gilad Hamdani, one of several Hadassah physicians training at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center as part of their Israel Exchange Program (IEP).

Dr. Hamdani is a Fellow in Pediatric Nephrology in the Division of Nephrology and Hypertension at Cincinnati Children's Hospital, training in the diagnosis and care of the wide variety of kidney and urinary tract disorders in children. Cincinnati Children’s established the IEP in 2011 to improve clinical care for children, more expertly train scientists and pediatric medical providers and make research and technological advances that benefit the world. Hadassah Medical Organization and other hospitals in Israel collaborate with Cincinnati Children’s doctors to jointly treat patients with complex conditions in both Cincinnati and Israel. The IEP also provides for research and technological collaborations with Israeli start-ups and universities.
Dr. Hamdani studied medicine at the Hadassah-Hebrew University Medical School at Jerusalem. Later on he was trained as a pediatrician at the Pediatrics Department Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center in Jerusalem. Prior to coming to Cincinnati, he worked as a pediatrician in the Pediatric Emergency Department of Hadassah Ein Kerem and as a general pediatrician in Clalit Health Services in Beit Shemesh, Israel.
Dr. Hamdani arrived in Cincinnati four months ago, along with his wife, Maya and two daughters, Noam and Omer. He, Maya and their brand new baby girl, born in September, were guests at the Hadassah Opening Meeting and Dinner on September 29th.
For nearly 100 years, Hadassah and its hospitals have been leaders in medicine and nursing in Israel, laying the foundation and setting the standards for the country's modern health care system. The two Hadassah medical centers set the standard for health care in Israel, providing compassionate care to patients from all backgrounds. Health care professionals from all over the world come to Jerusalem to learn innovative methods of dealing with public health challenges. At the same time, Hadassah researchers are dedicated to finding cures for world's most debilitating diseases. Over the last decades, Hadassah affiliates have developed in 34 countries under the aegis of Hadassah-International. Donations to Hadassah fund Hadassah Medical Organization, Hadassah College, and many other health, youth and educational programs.
