On Sunday, September 20, 2015, Hadassah Northeast will hold its fourth Walk for Health at the Chestnut Hill Reservoir at Cleveland Circle in Brighton, Mass. Registration begins at 1:30 pm and the Walk for Health begins at 2:00 pm.
The funds raised at this event will be used to benefit Hadassah Medical Organization in Israel.
Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization of America is known for its extraordinary medical care and ground-breaking research. In addition to two medical complexes in Israel that serve all people of the region and those airlifted to its doors, Hadassah runs training clinics in Africa for those suffering from AIDS, has sent medical staff to Haiti and the Philippines and partnered with hospitals and medical schools in Europe and the United States.
Boston was the beneficiary of the trauma protocol developed at Hadassah Hospital as Israeli -trained medical staff from local hospitals responded to the wounded victims of the Marathon bombing in April 2013. Right now medical trials for ALS patients at Massachusetts General Hospital and UMass Memorial Medical Center are being held as a direct result of the stem cell research done at Hadassah.
