September 2018 Associates Update

Thursday, Sep 20 2018

Shanah Tovah

On behalf of the Officers and Trustees, the Hadassah Associates wish you and your loved ones a happy New Year full of blessings for long life, good health, peace and prosperity. 

Thank you to all who have supported our Associates mission to advance medical research, healing, and education in the US, Israel and around the world. I hope you will share my pride in the accomplishments Hadassah has recently made in  research and the treatment of four of the deadliest diseases for men: prostate cancer, heart disease, lung cancer, and Alzheimer's disease.

The Associates will continue our focus on fundraising and educational efforts tied to  keeping the Hadassah Medical Organization at the forefront of the fight against Alzheimer's disease. Alzheimer's is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States. Of the top 10 causes of death in the US, it is the only one that cannot be prevented, cured or even slowed. In 2016, Alzheimer's drained some $200 billion from the United States economy. This devastating illness  affects one in every 20 people aged 65 to 85, and almost half of those older than 95 — some 24.3 million people worldwide.

As we think about the year to come and how we can make it a better year for our loved ones, ourselves and families around the world, please think about the Associates and support the Men's Health Initiative. Join our fight against this devastating disease.

Associates of Eastern Connecticut

We're extremely grateful to Hadassah Associate Chairman Alan Ruditzky and the 19 Associates who stepped up at Hadassah's Eastern Connecticut Donor Dinner this year to support the 360° of Healing: The Full Circle Campaign. Together, we'll ensure that the iconic Round Building at Hadassah Hospital Ein Kerem helps keep Israel at the forefront of medicine and secures Hadassah’s legacy of healing for the next 100 years.
