Northwestern Mutual financial adviser Bill Loventhal presented a $10,000 grant from the MDRT Foundation to Hadassah during the Best Strokes: Hadassah Bares All for Art, Awareness and Treatment fundraiser Sunday, March 18.
The Hadassah Greater Atlanta event raised money for breast and ovarian cancers and genetic research programs at Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem, as well as for education, advocacy and prevention in the United States.
“We are honored to be recognized by MDRT Foundation for their grant, which will transform lives and continue our medical work in service to humanity,” said Sheila Dalmat, Hadassah Greater Atlanta’s president.
Through its global grants programs, the MDRT Foundation is committed to building stronger families and communities worldwide. This year the foundation will award more than $1 million in Million Dollar Round Table member-endorsed grants to more than 200 charitable organizations.
Hadassah’s initiatives for women’s health education and advocacy in the Atlanta area include Check-It-Out, which teaches high-schoolers about body awareness, breast cancer and healthy lifestyles; the Gender Equity in Medicine advocacy program for women’s health; and the Planning Medical Seminar, which convenes like-minded and complementary health care and public health professionals.
