WISH: Let's Do It Again
Last year, we launched a campaign to raise money for the Dubin Breast Center at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York. It was a deeply personal initiative and one of the most important things we have done at Zadeh. We can't stress enough how honored we have been to be a part of their amazing mission.
With your help, through sales of the Wish Bracelet, we donated over $25,000.
The funds helped the Dubin Breast Center launch their inaugural annual Breast Surgery Fellowship.
Dr. Soojin Ahn started July 1st and will train under the Center’s leading breast surgeons, including Elisa Port, MD, FACS, Co-Chair of the Dubin Breast Center and Chief of Breast Surgery at Mount Sinai, through June 30, 2016.
ABOUT THE FELLOWSHIP
One postdoctoral fellow each year in Breast Surgery at the Dubin Breast Center will gain invaluable experience through a year-long rotation of working side-by-side with our world renowned physicians and scientists who are the very best in their fields. Fellowships are only granted to the most prestigious breast surgery programs throughout the country, and have proven to be optimal training grounds for the next generation of breast surgeons.
Fellows also have considerable exposure to many disciplines related to patient care unique to the Center, including:
Genetic and Oncofertility Counseling
This multidisciplinary structure equips the inaugural Breast Surgery Fellow with the tools they need to become leaders in breast cancer treatment & research.
This year, we want to do it again. We want to double our goal.
