Designer Pamella Roland’s spring 2013 collection took center stage in December at The Mount Sinai Medical Center’s Second Annual Women’s Health Fashion Show and Luncheon at The Waldorf=Astoria. The models wore jewelry provided by Chopard, and more than 500 guests enjoyed a luncheon menu selected by chef Mario Batali.
The event raised more than $450,000, which will be used to raise awareness about the importance of primary care in the prevention and detection of women’s medical issues, fund research on reproductive cancers, educate women about heart health, and investigate the relationship between gender differences and the environment.
Luncheon Chairs included:
Alison K. Axelrod; Dina Leader; Adrianne Silver; Michael Brodman, MD, Ellen and Howard C. Katz Chairman’s Chair of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Science at The Mount Sinai Medical Center; Mary Ann McLaughlin, MD, Associate Professor of Medicine (Cardiology) and Medical Director of the Cardiac Health Program at The Mount Sinai Medical Center; and Barbara Murphy, MD, Chair of the Samuel F. Bronfman Department of Medicine at The Mount Sinai Medical Center.
The following Mount Sinai physicians served as the event’s doctor chairs: Sharmila Anandasabapathy, MD, Associate Professor of Medicine (Gastroenterology); Lynn S. Friedman, MD, Assistant Clinical Professor of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Science; Elissa M. Gretz Friedman, MD, Assistant Clinical Professor of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Science; and Jennifer A. Kent, MD, Assistant Professor of Medicine.
“Mount Sinai’s robust specialty practices represent the depth and breadth of women’s health care in the modern age, from delivering babies to preventive screenings, to complicated cancer surgeries,” said Dr. Brodman. “We have also expanded the research capabilities of the divisions of reproductive services, maternal fetal medicine, and gynecology oncology, ushering in a new era of innovation and technological advances.”
