Fifth Annual Medical Symposium & Luncheon

29 October 2014


Our Fifth Annual Medical Symposium & Luncheon was a great success! Held Wednesday, October 29, 2014 directly on the heels of our Angel Ball gala, this day of science was a perfect follow-up for our donors to hear first-hand how their generous support is being translated. As it does every year, this event provided an invaluable opportunity for our grantees to meet in an intimate setting to hear about each other's work and to discuss possible future collaborations. Medical Advisory Board member, Dr. Jerome Groopman of Harvard gave the keynote address in the morning session followed by eight additional presentations by foundation grantees past and present.

The afternoon session also included Angel Ambassador Erin Zammett Ruddy speaking from a cancer survivor's perspective. Held at midtown hotspot 54 Below, our crew was treated to a musical performance by special musical guest, Jonathan Batiste. Our great thanks again to the Jynwel Charitable Foundation Limited for their support of this year's symposium.
