Leadership Sinai was an obvious choice for me. Not only did I want to give back to the community, but I also wanted to feel aligned and connected with the purpose of my donations.

The projects and programs that Leadership Sinai’s fundraising supports are life altering and relevant to the age and stage of the membership making them feel even more tangible.

Equally important are the events and programs that Leadership Sinai runs, giving members exposure to the various scientists and areas of the hospital their donations support. It’s impossible to be exposed to the brilliant and dedicated people at Mount Sinai and not want to be part of the solution to the problems they’re working to solve!

When we look at our careers or our professional lives, it is important to not only build our careers but also give back to those who are less fortunate. Health care is clearly an area that is important to everyone. I chose Sinai for many reasons, but chiefly because I feel that Sinai holds a special connection to the city and to my family, and because of the outstanding research and care that takes place there. Sinai strives for excellence in all areas of health care, and I think that anyone looking to meaningfully contribute to their community will find Mount Sinai is the best place to put their energy and knowledge to use.
