And while it is a worthy structure, the Pavilion is something more: an embodiment of the values that guide Cedars-Sinai. First and foremost, the Pavilion reflects our most fundamental value: the well-being of our patients. It supports the highest levels of care, safety, and comfort. Our programs in cardiology, neurosurgery, neurology, and other outpatient services demonstrate our hope, our desire, and our responsibility for each patient to feel genuinely welcomed and cared for. From its serene waiting areas to its bright, comfortable exam rooms, this place is for our patients. The Pavilion embodies another core value: generosity. As they have done through the decades, our community of donors stepped forward with abundant funding. The Pavilion also represents a third value: the paramount importance of deep communication. The building is an 11-story synergy network. This is something new. Throughout the 20th century, scientists and doctors worked in separate spaces and, more often than not, in separate buildings. Their workspaces reflected traditional thinking that valued compartmentalization. Today, we know that keeping scientists and doctors apart tends to block the flow of knowledge. Progress often happens in spontaneous, face-to-face conversations. In short, the Pavilion flows from the principle that human connection is the essential ingredient for superior care and life-changing science. The Pavilion reflects the value we place on our environment as well. Its 21st-century energy-saving innovations earned a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) gold rating from the U.S. Green Building Council. We are proud that the Pavilion is one of the greenest medical facilities in the United States. Last, though not least, the Pavilion is convenient: The first levels of the building are devoted to parking. Superior patient care, cutting-edge science, community generosity, vibrant communication, green design, and visitor convenience — the Pavilion is new to Los Angeles, but it is grounded in Cedars-Sinai tradition: It is here to serve you. “First and foremost, the Advanced Health Sciences Pavilion reflects our most fundamental value: the well-being of our patients.” 12 Synthesis 42 The Starting Point Illuminations 46 Philanthropic Tributes and Honor Roll Connections 60Upcoming Events Vera Guerin|Vice-Chair, Cedars-Sinai Board of Directors CATALYST WINTER 2013–14 1 Building Momentum iPads Foster Bonding in the NICU R achel Little desperately wanted to visit her newborn daughter, but her own recovery from the cesarean birth confined her to a hospital bed during this crucial time of bonding, and the baby could not yet be released from the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Fortunately, a new initiative in the Maxine Dunitz Children’s Health Center at Cedars-Sinai offers a solution for that, and Rachel was among the first to use it. Called BabyTime, this innovative project uses the iPad’s FaceTime video networking technology to connect mothers with their newborns soon after delivery — even when parent and child are hospitalized on different floors. As soon as the baby is admitted to the NICU, an iPad is set up beside the infant’s incubator. A second iPad is brought to the new mother, who can log on to BabyTime twice a day to see her child. “BabyTime reduces fear and stress in new moms, as they are able to see their babies and also communicate with doctors and nurses,” says NICU nurse manager Selma Braziel, RN. “Even though I couldn’t hold my baby girl, she stopped crying when she heard me talk to her,” Rachel recalls. In turn, the new mother was comforted by being able to hear physicians in the NICU explain the infant’s condition. “While it’s not the same as being able to hold your baby, it was almost as good,” she says. A day later, her daughter was released from the NICU, and Rachel could hold her baby at last. Julius Caceres, RN, left, and Yvonne Kidder, RN, right, helped create the BabyTime program that is allowing new mom Florentina Trujillo to see her baby in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Baa…ginnings of Cedars-Sinai Rooted in Shepherds’ Trust Cedars-Sinai’s history dates back to 1902 and the founding of Kaspare Cohn Hospital, named for a prominent businessman. But its roots go back even further, to the late 1800s, when Southern California was covered in fields upon which sheep and cattle grazed, and Cohn’s business included the wool trade. Shepherds grew to trust the merchant so much that he would hold their money while they tended their flocks. Two great institutions grew out of these shepherds’ faith in Cohn: Union Bank and Cedars-Sinai Medical Center as we know it today. 2 CATALYST WINTER 2013–14 348 The most Circle of Friends gifts in a single month (December 2012) “Her compassionate, caring attitude, her comforting smile, and reassuring explanations converted my experience in the emergency room into a concierge/ VIP encounter.

CATALYST WINTER 2013–14 3 Building Momentum A Community Aid for Seniors R Below: Women gather to sign up for free breast cancer screenings and learn about possible risk factors. 4 CATALYST WINTER 2013–14 ose Steckler, 82, had to take three buses to the 12th annual Senior Health Fair at West Hollywood’s Plummer Park Community Center, but she knew it would be worth it. After having her blood pressure tested, Rose had her total cholesterol and glucose levels measured. CedarsSinai’s Eileen Rodriguez, RN, took her readings and relayed good news: Blood sugar was normal, cholesterol excellent. The health fair provides a lifeline for some of the region’s most vulnerable residents. CedarsSinai co-sponsored the event and brought in 21 nurses to provide Community By Sherry Angel free screenings for heart disease, diabetes, and breast cancer. Six of the nurses could speak Russian — a benefit to the large contingent of Russian immigrants who face language barriers as well as financial obstacles to accessing needed care. Cedars-Sinai has been sending health professionals to this event ever since the health fair began. The other co-sponsors are Jewish Family Services of Los Angeles, the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center, and The Saban Community Clinic. While Rose was pleased with her results, many others received news that called for action. One woman learned her blood pressure was alarmingly high, despite her lean frame and apparent good health. After checking the results, Larisa Bazarenco, RN, led the woman to a nurse who specializes in stroke treatment and who was distributing materials about risk factors and symptoms. Then Bazarenco introduced the woman to another nurse for counseling on follow-up steps. Gail Millan, RN — who organizes teams for community events in her role as Nursing Educator Program coordinator for the Cedars-Sinai Geri and Richard Brawerman Nursing Institute — observed the event with satisfaction. “She feels she doesn’t have options because she can’t afford treatment,” Millan noted of the Russian woman. “But the nurses gave her referrals to clinics where she can get free or low-cost healthcare.” Cedars-Sinai provides health screenings at community sites in underserved parts of Los Angeles throughout the year. With 400 participants, the West Hollywood Senior Health Fair is one of the largest. Abbe Land, a West Hollywood City Council member, stood in a crowded hallway of the community center and greeted health fair participants with smiles and hugs. “We really value Cedars-Sinai’s partnership and willingness to come,” she said, “not only to this event, but wherever we need them to provide health education to our community.” Counts The passion for healing that is part of Cedars-Sinai’s DNA doesn’t stop at the borders of our campus — it also encompasses the health needs of vulnerable residents throughout greater Los Angeles. 4,844 With the goal of prevention and early detection, Cedars-Sinai nurses screened 4,844 individuals for hypertension and diabetes at community health events over a recent 10-month period. 90 The People Coordinated Services’ Multipurpose Senior Center in Southwestern Los Angeles offers a variety of services for adults 60 years of age and older, including free cardiovascular and diabetes screenings, education, and counseling provided by Cedars-Sinai. A woman in her 80s who has been going to the Center for the past several years saw her blood glucose level drop from a high of 500 to 90. 112 It’s all about getting an early start on good health. Cedars-Sinai’s Healthy Habits program recently trained 112 Head Start teachers to incorporate structured physical activity and information on healthy eating in their preschool classes. 1,067 375 During the last flu season, Cedars-Sinai gave 1,067 individuals in the community free flu and pneumococcal immunizations. Cedars-Sinai donates kitchen space and staff time to prepare food distributed locally through Meals on Wheels, helping to feed an average of 375 homebound seniors and other vulnerable individuals each month. 9,000 More than 9,000 people received health services and screenings from Cedars-Sinai physicians, nurses, dietitians, pharmacists, podiatrists, educators, clinical researchers, and Youth Employment and Development (YED) students at the annual Telemundo Health and Wellness Expo. CATALYST WINTER 2013–14 5 Building Momentum Palliative Care Services’ Chaplain Christine Shu prays with patient Angelina Orduno. Uplifting Spiritual Care U nderstanding that healing involves the whole person — body, mind, and soul — Cedars-Sinai has expanded its chaplaincy program to offer support to patients, their loved ones, and staff members. The hospital’s chaplaincy staff has nearly quadrupled since 2010, growing from three clergy members to 10. Professionally trained and certified Jewish, Catholic, Protestant, and interfaith chaplains function as an integral part of the interdisciplinary healthcare team: They participate in daily rounds visiting patients — alongside doctors, nurses, social workers, and ethicists — and document a patient’s progress on the same chart as the medical team. Cedars-Sinai chaplains visit more than 1,500 patients per month, addressing sacred and existential concerns, as well as spiritual pain. In November 2012, Cedars-Sinai opened its own clinical pastoral education program, which will train up to 18 chaplains a year. Student chaplains visit with more than 500 patients a month, bringing the total monthly spiritual care visits at CedarsSinai to close to 2,000. artifact This Lister-type fogger—named after British surgeon and pioneer of antiseptic surgery Joseph Lister— was used to disinfect so-called ‘sick’ rooms.

Brainworks Inspires Students Cedars-Sinai’s annual Brainworks program gives 150 middle school students from throughout Los Angeles County the chance to engage in interactive neuroscience activities and lectures to inspire their curiosity and interest in brain science. “The suture station was especially exciting. This is different than what we learn in the classroom. It’s interesting when you get to actually see and experience it.” —Mia Leccese, a seventh-grader and aspiring physical therapist from Dana Middle School in San Pedro 6 Fred Smith (center), Image Guided Surgery coordinator, teaches students Jayland Davis and Audrey Lam how to use neurosurgical equipment. CATALYST WINTER 2013–14 7 The Major Catalyst Tragedy from Triumph to How Irene Pollin turned overwhelming personal helping improve the detection and treatment loss into activism that is of women’s heart disease. Like many high-achieving women, Irene Pollin By Candace Pearson 8 CATALYST WINTER 2013–14 has taken on multiple identities over the years — entrepreneur, psychiatric social worker, public health advocate, philanthropist/activist, wife, and mother. “Life has a way of taking you places you never expect to go,” Irene says. This truism has been borne out by her own journey: Irene’s life took her from devastating family tragedies to becoming a respected expert on chronic illness and the founder of the nation’s first organization dedicated to women’s heart disease prevention and education — Sister to Sister, the Women’s Heart Health Foundation. Now Irene has taken a new step by making a transformational $10 million gift to create the Linda Joy Pollin Women’s Heart Health Program at the Barbra Streisand Women’s Heart Center in the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute. “Partnering with Cedars-Sinai is an obvious extension of the prevention-focused work that has made Sister to Sister unique,” she says. “I could not think of a better way to reach out to our sisters.” Sister to Sister has been connecting with women since its launch in 1999. Today, the nonprofit is the largest provider of free heart health evaluations for women — with more than 100,000 cardiovascular screenings — and its “Smart for the Heart” online heart risk assessment tool is accessed by 20,000-plus visitors every month. “If someone knows their risk factors and the results they themselves can accomplish,” Irene says, “I believe they can, and will, make the necessary changes.” Her initial career was nearly as global — in another arena. For almost half a century, she and her late husband, Abe Pollin, were sports industry VIPs as co-owners of the Baltimore/Washington Bullets, which later became the Washington Wizards. They also owned a Women’s NBA team, a hockey team, and Verizon Center, the sports-entertainment complex in Washington, D.C. CATALYST WINTER 2013–14 9 Irene credits her mother, Goldie Kerchek, as “Irene is a feisty innovator. She’s an amazing pioneer— tenacious, intelligent, and committed.” —C. Noel Bairey Merz, MD 10 CATALYST WINTER 2013–14 Irene and Abe met at age 17. “We essentially grew up together,” she recalls. As the NBA’s longest-tenured owners, the Pollins knew great highs, including winning the 1979 NBA Championship. “We waited 14 years for that to happen,” she says, adding that it was a “once-in-a-lifetime experience.” They also encountered great lows: In 1952, their 1-year-old son, Kenneth, passed away from congenital heart disease. Eleven years later, the same condition took the life of their daughter, Linda, at age 16. Out of this overwhelming personal loss grew a passion for activism that continues today. “It was the desire to come back to life after the loss of our daughter that led to the purchase of the Baltimore Bullets and this entirely new experience,” says Irene. Irene returned to school after her daughter’s passing, earning a master’s degree in social work. In 1976, she created the first Medical Crisis Counseling Center to treat patients and families coping with chronic illness. She has published numerous articles and three books on the topic. In 1984, while she was serving on the National Cancer Institute Advisory Board, she learned women were often excluded from research. So she helped create “NBA Wives Save Lives.” “Irene is a feisty innovator,” says C. Noel Bairey Merz, MD. The director of the Barbra Streisand Women’s Heart Center and the Women’s Guild Chair in Women’s Health has known Irene since the early 2000s. They met after Dr. Bairey Merz saw an ad Irene placed in a medical journal announcing that Sister to Sister was seeking partner sites to launch an annual cardiovascular screening day. “She’s an amazing pioneer — tenacious, intelligent, and committed,” says Dr. Bairey Merz. an inspiration for her multi-faceted career. Goldie was the kind of woman who could bake a prize-worthy lemon meringue pie, yet when it was necessary to help with family finances, she opened a small store a bus ride away from their St. Louis home. “She not only did it, she loved it,” says Irene. It’s clear Irene loves the mission she embraced as chair of Sister to Sister and a champion for women’s health. “I’m proud to have such outstanding partners as we move forward,” she says. “My heart feels full with this opportunity.” The Linda Joy Pollin Women’s Heart Health Program promotes a threepart mission: education, research, and advocacy. Previously, the Barbra Streisand Women’s Health Center had to carve out dollars from its clinical budget to fund education for medical professionals and the public. “This gift will provide for that critically important enterprise,” says Dr. Bairey Merz. The program also will help sustain women’s heart research and expand the Center’s role as advocate for gender equality in public health policy. Having survived the loss of her children and her beloved Abe, Irene has forged a joyous family life with sons Robert and James, daughter-in-law Sigrid, two granddaughters, and a great-granddaughter. But her mind is never far from the challenges of heart disease prevention. “I look forward each day to thinking about what I can do to reach more women worldwide,” she says. Signs of a Heart Attack Symptoms Every Woman Should Know and Pay Attention To Women and men typically differ in their experience of heart attack symptoms, as women are less likely to have classic male symptoms such as chest pain and left-arm pain. If you have any of these symptoms for more than five minutes and are unsure of the cause, call 911: ♥ Nausea or vomiting ♥ Dizziness or lightheadedness ♥ Shortness of breath, with or without chest discomfort ♥ Discomfort or pressure in the center of the chest — often lasting more than a few minutes, or it can come and go ♥ Pain in one or both arms, upper back, neck, jaw, or stomach ♥ Paleness or clammy skin ♥ Fainting ♥ Inability to sleep ♥ Breaking out in a cold sweat ♥ Unusual fatigue Sometimes just one or two of the above symptoms may indicate a heart attack, and be aware that these symptoms can go away and return. Heart disease is the No. 1 health threat to women, causing one in three deaths each year. Treatment works best if administered within one hour of the onset of symptoms. If you are treated within one hour, your risk of dying declines by 50 percent. If treated within three hours, your risk of dying is reduced by 25 percent.

Giuliano, MD, in the battle against breast cancer. Dr. Giuliano is a pioneer in the introduction of sentinel node biopsy for breast cancer treatment. The naming of this chair is the culmination of a decades-long relationship between the Lippmans and the Medical Center: They are premier supporters of the Pink Party®, an annual event benefiting women’s cancer research, and their two sons were born at Cedars-Sinai. Dancing for NED Writer-producers Melissa Rosenberg (Twilight ) and Dana Baratta (Private Practice) organized and hosted Dancing for NED to benefit the Cedars-Sinai Women’s Cancer Program at the Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute and the work of its director, Beth Y. Karlan, MD. Radha Mitchell, Barry Watson, Mike White, and Jennifer Coolidge were among the actors who joined patients and physicians to celebrate cancer survivors and to raise funds and awareness for women’s gynecological cancers. Mark Valley served as master of ceremonies, and the dancing lasted until midnight. “NED” stands for “No Evidence of Disease,” which is what every woman with gynecological cancer strives for. Baratta shared her own experience with ovarian cancer. “Some were fooled by my fabulously ghetto wigs, but to me the world seemed to stop,” she said. “But I’m proud to say that for almost a year now I have been dancing with NED.” The American Cancer Society estimates that some 83,000 women are diagnosed each year with gynecological cancers and approximately 28,000 die from them. “Fear doesn’t get in the way of our team fighting cancer,” said Dr. Karlan. “We are not scared of women’s cancers. We believe in our patients, our approach, and our leading technologies.” 1 1 Jim and Linda Lippman with Lawrence B. Platt, chairman of the Cedars-Sinai Board of Directors, and Dr. Armando E.

CATALYST WINTER 2013–14 27 Forward Motion Heartening Talks about Cardiac Care This year’s Heart to Heart Conversation series covered topics ranging from congenital conditions to advances in cardiac care. Pediatric attending physician Scott W. Cohen, MD, led off the talks with “A Valentine’s Day Story” about children’s heart treatments. Evan Zahn, MD, director of the Congenital Heart Program and Pediatric Cardiology, then addressed ways to reduce trauma for children suffering from congenital heart conditions. The next session featured P.K. Shah, MD, Shapell and Webb Family Chair in Clinical Cardiology and director of the Oppenheimer Atherosclerosis Research Center, discussing coming breakthroughs. Steven B. Rubins, MD, attending cardiologist, shared a clinician’s perspective on the future of heart disease prevention. Heart to Heart Conversations are held by the CedarsSinai Heart Institute in recognition of American Heart Month and give guests a unique opportunity to visit with doctors in a nonmedical setting. The sessions pair top cardiac physicians from the faculty and from private practice to illustrate the collaborative teamwork that fuels the Heart Institute’s growing success. The resulting dialogues among participants and with guests are lively, memorable, and, above all, informative. Duets Against Cancer The 2013 What A Pair! Benefit Concert provided fun-filled music while raising funds for breast cancer research and education programs at the Cedars-Sinai Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute.

Petersen Foundation for their gift of $5 million to establish the Margie Petersen Breast Cancer Research Fund directed by Armando E. Giuliano, MD, at Cedars-Sinai. The evening honored the lives of Margie and Robert E. Petersen, who were a powerful force in Los Angeles philanthropy for many years. A founder of the Cedars-Sinai Research for Women’s Cancers support group, Margie passed away in 2011 after an 18-year struggle with breast cancer. She and her late husband, Robert, established the Margie and Robert E. Petersen Foundation in 1997. 3 5 5 GiGi Carleton, president of the Margie and Robert E. Petersen Foundation, Dr. Armando E.

Petersen Foundation CATALYST WINTER 2013–14 29 Forward Motion An Award from the Heart The Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute honored Alain Carpentier, MD, PhD, with the second annual Eliot Corday, MD, International Prize in Heart Research. Considered the leading pioneer in modern mitral heart-valve repair, Dr. Carpentier’s innovations include using pig valves in humans. This procedure reduces or eliminates the need for patients to take blood thinners for the rest of their lives, as required for artificial-valve patients. Dr. Carpentier serves as president of the Académie des Sciences at the Institut de France and is a professor emeritus at the Université Paris Descartes and adjunct professor at Mount Sinai Medical School in New York. During the ceremony, he delivered a lecture about xenotransplantation, the transfer of tissue or cells from one species to another. “At Cedars-Sinai, where we have performed more minimally invasive heart-valve procedures than any other U.S. medical center, we rely on Dr. Carpentier’s pioneering work every day,” said Eduardo Marbán, MD, PhD, director of the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute and the Mark Siegel Family Foundation Distinguished Chair. The Corday Prize is named for the late Eliot Corday, MD, a trailblazer in invasive cardiology who also served as chief of Cardiology at Cedars-Sinai and as a member of the Board of Directors. He collaborated on research that led to modern stress testing and nuclear cardiology, and he contributed to the development of coronary intensive care units. Dr. Corday’s leadership had global impact, as he championed increased federal funding for medical research and the sharing of American cardiovascular expertise worldwide. The Corday Prize is funded by a gift from Brindell Gottlieb and her late husband, Milton. 1 1 Dr. Howard Sandler, chair of Radiation Oncology and the Ronald H.

Conversations About Cancer brings experts together in front of select audiences to illuminate progress and current trends in cancer research. Steven Romick, board member of the PHASE ONE Foundation, served as chair for the event, held at the Peninsula Beverly Hills. 4 Dr. Carpentier presenting his guest lecture, “Adventures in Heart Disease Therapy: From Valvular to Cardiac Bioprosthesis” 2 Larry Mantle, Dr. Amin Mirhadi, and Dr. Paul Song Mosenifar Named Geri and Richard Brawerman Chair Zab Mosenifar, MD, medical director of the Women’s Guild Lung Institute at Cedars-Sinai, has been named the Geri and Richard Brawerman Chair in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine. A dedication ceremony in June commemorated the occasion. Dr. Mosenifar is among the world’s pre-eminent lung specialists and an admired member of the Cedars-Sinai staff since 1979. The chair’s namesakes, Women’s Guild Vice President Geri Brawerman and her late husband, Richard, have a long philanthropic history with Cedars-Sinai, funding the Geri and Richard Brawerman Nursing Institute and endowing the Geri and Richard Brawerman Chair in Molecular Genetics, among other generous support. After welcoming remarks by Cedars-Sinai President and CEO Thomas M.

But none are more important than the attendees in aqua-blue coats who filled the auditorium on an unseasonably warm day last spring. They are the men, women, and teens who give so freely of their time and talents to Cedars-Sinai, and the event — part of Volunteer Appreciation Week — was a celebration of their invaluable service. There were hugs aplenty as volunteers spotted old friends. Even the canine volunteers of the Pets Offering Ongoing Care and Healing (POOCH) program joined 42 CATALYST WINTER 2013–14 the party, trotting alongside their owners. As everyone took their seats for lunch, the dogs settled down quietly, seeming to enjoy the festivities as much as their human counterparts. At one table, Music for Healing volunteer Rick Penn-Kraus entertained his companions by playing the guitar. Volunteers may not be involved in direct scientific or medical achievements, but the services they provide each day fulfill a vital role in advancing the well-being of patients and their families. Every year, Cedars-Sinai hosts a weeklong series of luncheons in appreciation of their countless acts of kindness — feeding patients; delivering flowers, magazines, and mail; calming anxious parents whose children are in the ER; soothing stroke victims; and encouraging heart transplant patients. Cedars-Sinai volunteers do all this and so much more. For Transforming Care at the Bedside (TCAB) volunteers Linda Mendoza and Stephanie Castro, this was the first Volunteer Appreciation Week lunch. They both found the experience “very emotional.” “It makes you so happy and appreciated,” said Linda. “And it’s nice to meet others who are so focused on helping.” Stephanie agreed: “Being here made me feel like part of a family.” As is the tradition, each luncheon began with an invocation by Rabbi Jason Weiner, who recited the Ha-Motzi, the Jewish blessing that thanks God for the bread about to be served. As Rabbi Weiner explained, the prayer’s meaning applies directly to the work of the volunteers: “As wheat is turned into bread, so you turn your time, talent, and compassion into the desire to serve. To make a difference in so many lives is a blessing that you give.” As volunteers enjoyed kale and chicken salad, the lights dimmed for a video presentation. Up on the large screen, a dozen Cedars-Sinai volunteers — via footage shot by NBC for its American Giving Awards show — spoke simply but eloquently about what volunteering means to them. 2 1 Karen Levine and Winnie, POOCH volunteer 2 Debbie Rath-Hirschinger, Camille Camello-Zendejas, Roohi Rahban, and Gila Perry 3 Cedars-Sinai Board of Directors Chair Lawrence B.

Others told of the special satisfaction they gained from rendering care and attention to those in need of both. Without exception, all volunteers said they felt gratified by giving freely of themselves to strangers whom they likely would never meet again. In her remarks to the group, Barbara Leanse, director of Volunteer Services, applauded everyone for their selflessness. “You are not looking for acknowledgment or recognition,” she said. “You come because you are interested in helping people, simply to be available to help someone experiencing difficult times. You come because it makes you feel good to give, to help, and to be available for those who could use a smile, a kind word, or just a moment in time.” She concluded: “Cedars-Sinai is a place where miracles happen as well as where life and death can occur. You really do not know what type of situation you will be confronted with, but we do know that your emotions and heartstrings will be touched on any given day.” In addition to her moving speech, Leanse announced a milestone: The number of volunteers has grown from 2,500 to nearly 3,000 since 2012. As a volunteer in the Emergency Department, Linda King is part of a small team and is ordinarily wholly focused on her work. But attending the luncheon made her feel part of a much larger community. “When I look around, it makes me feel humble and proud to be part of this wonderful group,” she said. we are family 2 3 5 4 Norman Sklarewitz is a volunteer at Cedars-Sinai. A former police reporter for Chicago’s City News Bureau, he went on to serve as Far East correspondent for The Wall Street Journal and subsequently joined U.S. News & World Report as Los Angeles bureau chief. He served three years in the U.S. Army during World War II, spending two years in the European Theater of Operations as a military correspondent. He resides in Los Angeles with his wife, Esther, also a Cedars-Sinai volunteer. 6 While Volunteer Appreciation Week is designed to recognize the work of all CedarsSinai volunteers, the week’s daily lunches are highly personal events for many. This year marked the 10th such celebration for Fay Block, and she wasn’t going to miss it. “It’s fun to be here with so many co-workers,” she said. “Ordinarily, I don’t get to see a lot of these people, so doing so at the lunch is very nice.” For her part, Ruthie Krivis has not skipped a single Volunteer Appreciation lunch in 32 years. “It’s like a reunion for me,” she said, noting that she already knew all six of her table companions. This was the first Volunteer Appreciation Week for Debra Davis, and she was impressed that it was so “well organized.” As for her work at Cedars-Sinai, she said it has been “everything I expected and more.” — N.S. 1 The Cedars-Sinai family of volunteers 2 Michael Hunter 3 Ruthie Krivis, who has come to Volunteer Appreciation Week every single year for the past 32 years 4 Rosalyn Twomey, Charles Fong, and Karina Casabar 5 Nicola Kuelpman, Julie Shames, Judy Winick, and Mary Fox 6 Steve and Ethie Hitter Panorama by Music For Healing volunteer Rick Penn-Kraus 1 Illuminations Philanthropic Tributes Cedars-Sinai Medical Center Honor Roll Ali John Enayati, MD, MPH Mr. James E.

The piece was previously exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in a singleartist installation on the museum’s Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden. This 4,000-pound outdoor sculpture, which resembles a sailing craft, is now displayed at the corner of San Vicente and Beverly boulevards. Cedars-Sinai’s fine-art collection grew out of the vision and generosity of Marcia Simon Weisman and her husband, Frederick, who understood the curative power of art and donated a number of pieces from their own collection to the Medical Center. Today, the world-renowned collection—all of it donated—includes thousands of pieces, with an emphasis on contemporary artwork by local established and emerging artists.
