Over 240 people attended the fifteenth annual Healthy Give and Take luncheon sponsored by the Auxiliary of NSLIJ- Lenox Hill Hospital. This year's luncheon was held at the Metropolitan Club with the theme "Taking Care of Yourself". Jane Hanson, the Emmy award winning broadcast journalist acted as moderator for the event. This was the Auxiliary's most successful luncheon to date.
Now in its fifteenth year, the topic focused on women's emotional, physical and financial well-being, encouraging women to be their own advocate and be proactive in their own care. An expert panel of Lenox Hill Hospital physicians including Bryan Bruno, MD, Acting Chairman of Psychiatry, Susan Scott, MD, Attending Surgeon, Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Karen Drancik, Vice President of Neuberger Berman Advisor Institute, discussed steps we can take to promote and ensure that we are the best we can be.
Proceeds from the 2013 Healthy Give and Take luncheon support a wide variety of Auxiliary programs and projects undertaken for the benefit of the hospital and the local community.
