Hadassah Greater Atlanta held its installation of officers and board via Zoom last month. Phyllis M. Cohen and Sheila Dalmat, both past chapter presidents, discharged and thanked the outgoing board and installed the incoming officers and board Dec. 20. In keeping with the theme of light, each incoming board member lit a candle and presented a quote to represent something meaningful and uplifting that referenced light.
Outgoing president, Michele Weiner-Merbaum, was thanked for her outstanding service to the chapter for the past two years. Marci Abrams-Feinstein was installed as president. Her involvement in Hadassah and the Hadassah Medical Organization is the extension of her background in healthcare.
In her remarks, she shared that she learned early on how important good health and medications can be to a person’s life through parents who were both pharmacists in their Philadelphia drugstore, where they served their community and brought healing to their patients. She followed in their footsteps and served as a community pharmacist, striving to improve the health and welfare of the people she served.
Abrams-Feinstein became devoted to the HMO because she saw firsthand how Hadassah is on the cutting edge of medical research with amazing new treatments and state-of-the-art hospitals. HMO’s willingness to share knowledge with other medical institutions around the world makes it a leader in the field of medicine. In her words, “Hadassah is no stranger to light. Involvement in Hadassah helps light the way for continued healing.”
