The goal for Humanitarian Award is to raise significant funds for the Neurology Department at Hadassah Hospitals.

The department’s achievements in research, clinical trials, stem cell research and treatment for neurodegenerative diseases–multiple sclerosis (MS), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), epilepsy, and Parkinson’s disease among them– are groundbreaking.

Ann Eisenberg

Ann, a true humanitarian has held offices in Hadassah’s leadership locally, regionally and nationally. Her dedication and passion for Hadassah’s mission of Tikkun Olam make her truly deserving of this award. Ann’s contributions across many organizations are plentiful and they are the result of her steadfast commitments and generous spirit to improving the well-being of others.

She was instrumental in bringing Hadassah’s Check It Out! program to Richmond, reaching over 60,000 students in the area with this breast and testicular cancer self-examination program. She was honored as a Richmond History Maker for those presentations.

The Elinor Bloom Marshall Humanitarian Award is given bi-annually to an outstanding person who has been unselfishly devoted to causes that benefit society, as was its namesake.

Elinor is fondly remembered for her dedication to Hadassah, her talent, and her devotion to her family, friends and community. Past recipients were Elinor Bloom Marshall (obm), Bill Moskowitz, Richard November, and Deane and Dan Dubansky.

Hadassah enhances the health and lives of people in Israel, the United States and worldwide serving more than a million women, men and children a year, regardless of religion, race or nationality.
