APF Board Member Nancy Schmidt, RN, and her husband, Dr. Richard Schmidt, hosted a great night for APF.
Guest speaker Dr. Alex Zendel, on an APF fellowship in transplant surgery at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York, was a medical field officer and commander of an IDF surgical tactical team. Four years ago, he volunteered at the emergency field hospital that the IDF set up in Nepal to help victims of the catastrophic earthquake.
At the event, Nancy and Richard Schmidt surprised Dr. Ofrat Beyar Katz, an Israeli Fellow in Hematology-Oncology at the University of Pennsylvania, with the news that they would sponsor her 2019 APF Fellowship Grant. In addition, two officers from Lower Merion Township, PA, will be able to join APF’s Emergency & Disaster Preparedness Course in Israel thanks to the Schmidt family. Yasher Koach!
