I've been a member of the Downstate community for 30 years!

During that time, I have seen this extraordinary institution tirelessly build upon its 150 year tradition of innovation in education, research, and patient care. Downstate's programs, discoveries, and graduates consistently transform lives, locally, nationally, and internationally — with ever increasing scope and impact.

Because of Downstate's enduring commitment to excellence, I've chosen to become a donor myself. It gives me great personal satisfaction to know that my contributions will extend the vital work being done here today far into the future.

Please join me today in supporting Downstate's leadership role as a world-class innovator!
