CINCINNATI - Hadassah National President Marcie Natan will get a firsthand look Wednesday at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center – a partner with two Hadassah hospitals in Jerusalem.
During her hospital tour, Natan will meet with Michael Fisher, the hospital's CEO, to talk about the partnership. According to a release, the partnership is part of the Israel Exchange Program which was established in 2011 to improve clinical care for children, to more expertly train scientists and pediatric providers and to make research and technological advances that benefit the world.
Hadassah and other hospital physicians 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.
Natan has served as president of the Women's Zionist Organization of America, the largest women's volunteer organization in America, since 2011 and has been involved with Hadassah for more than 40 years.
Also during her visit to Cincinnati, Natan attend three special donor fundraising and informational events that will help support Hadassah's many projects in Israel, as well as the medical collaboration with Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center.
The first event, a wine and dessert reception, takes place at 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 24 at the home of Kim and Larry Juran. On Thursday, April 25, she will speak at a 10 a.m. private reception at the Kenwood Country Club which will be followed by the organization's Annual Donor Luncheon at 11:30 a.m. also at Kenwood Country Club.
