June 2017 Associates Update

Salute to Fred Safer
On May 1, 2017, Fred stepped down as the Associates President so he and his wife, Rena, can make aliyahand join his extended family in Israel. Fred has shown great leadership as our president and inspired us with his hard work and dedication to Hadassah ideals and in carrying out the Associates' mission of advancing medical research, healing, and education. We thank Fred for his many years of service to the Associates and wish him and Rena all the best as they embark on their new journey. Fred, you're a hard act to follow. You will be missed.

Alzheimer's Research
The Associates Men's Health Initiative in 2017 (and beyond) is focusing its fundraising and educational efforts on meeting the challenges of Alzheimer's disease. Alzheimer's disease is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States and the only top-10 US cause of death that cannot be prevented, cured or slowed. One of the most costly diseases in the developed world, last year Alzheimer's drained some $200 billion from the US economy. This devastating illness already affects one in every 20 people aged 65 to 85, and almost half of those older than 95 some 24.3 million people worldwide.Hadassah Medical Organization has been a leader in the fight against Alzheimer's.

Dr. Shahar Arzy, director of the Computational Neuropsychiatry Lab at the Hadassah Medical Organization, was the keynote speaker at the Alzheimer's Foundation of America Conference held May 5 in New York City. His presentation on HMO's cutting-edge advances, titled "Unraveling Alzheimer's Disease," was wonderfully received. Hadassah maintained an informational exhibit and table at the conference, where Associates were represented.
