October 15, 2015 (Beachwood) – Jewish Family Service Association honored 2015 Anne C. Schwartz Leadership Award Recipient Dr. David Rosenberg at Anshe Chesed Fairmount Temple on Wednesday, October 14. More than 450 guests attended the sold out event which included a VIP dinner and a program featuring keynote speaker Dr. Jeffrey Brenner, Mac Arthur Fellow and Executive Director of the Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers.
The evening’s program focused on JFSA’s Medical Clinic Alyson’s Place and its innovative healthcare delivery model that serves the community’s most vulnerable populations. The clinic, which opened in part due to Dr. Rosenberg’s efforts, serves as a bold step in integrated healthcare, a fact that was reiterated in Dr. Brenner’s remarks. The program ended with an energetic Fund-A-Need auction which raised over $40,000 for the agency.
“David is so deserving of this special award,” says JFSA Board Chair Phil Cohen. “His commitment to our community is truly inspiring. The success of this event is certainly proof of that.”
