HOLLYWOOD, Fla., May 13, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- American Friends of Sheba Medical Center, Tel HaShomer is proud
American Friends of Sheba Medical Center is a nonprofit organization based in South Florida and New York committed to supporting the work of Sheba Medical Center, Tel HaShomer. The largest and most comprehensive hospital in Israel and the entire Middle East, Sheba was recently named by Newsweek as one of the ten best hospitals in the world.
"We are honored to welcome Dr. Pulver as our inaugural chairman for South Florida," said Alan Frent, South Florida Regional Director, American Friends of Sheba Medical Center. "Dr. Pulver's passion for Sheba's cutting-edge research will help shape how the organization raises awareness and philanthropic support for Sheba in South Florida."
A physician with a specialty interest in hematology, Dr. Pulver met with researchers at Sheba in Israel last year and had the opportunity to observe their work. Dr. Pulver became particularly interested in the work of Sheba researcher Prof. Benjamin Dekel and his innovative approach to renal disease, including renal cancer. Since then, Dr. Pulver and his wife Lisa have made a three-year commitment to supporting Prof. Dekel's laboratory.
"I am delighted to assume the role as Chairman, and look forward to providing structure and support to the members of the Advisory Committee. Together, we will inform the South Florida community about Sheba and the tremendous value and impact our support will have on Sheba, Israel, and the world Jewish community," said Dr. Pulver.
"Sheba possesses a unique combination of attributes that sets it apart from other hospitals, both in the U.S. and in Israel," Dr. Pulver continued. "Sheba is in many ways THE national medical center of the State of Israel. When we hear of the many global humanitarian efforts undertaken by Israel, Sheba is the vehicle through which many of those efforts are accomplished. Additionally, Sheba is home to major specialized research centers which integrate basic research and clinical studies across a broad spectrum of medical disciplines."
Dr. Pulver and his wife Lisa have supported Sheba for over ten years. Most recently, Lisa and her friend Daphna Cramer co-chaired a launch event in Aventura for the opening of American Friends of Sheba's new South Florida office.
