Sinai Hospital’s Brunch and Learn Medical Symposium Has Food and Food for Thought on the Menu

Sinai’s 150th anniversary brings medical professionals and the community together to discuss medicine now and future possibilities.

As part of Sinai Hospital's 150th anniversary commemoration, the hospital recently held the Brunch and Learn Symposium for medical experts, students and community members at the hospital to discuss the medical topics that are on everyone’s minds now and how medicine will look in the future.Amy Perry at Sinai 150

Medical education has always been a cornerstone in Sinai’s history, and it is an integral part of the hospital’s mission as a teaching hospital.

John Cmar, M.D., the director of the Division of Infectious Diseases at Sinai, was a keynote speaker. His presentation was entitled “From A to Zika.” It was filled with information, insight and humor.

Michael Tangrea, Ph.D., scientific director of the Sinai Hospital BioIncubator, spoke about how advances in technology and medicine will change the way people are diagnosed and treated in the future, possibly resulting in care tailored to every individual.

Amy Perry, the president of Sinai Hospital and the executive vice president of LifeBridge Health, began the symposium with introductions and an overview of Sinai's historic role at the forefront of medical education.

During her remarks, she explained that Jerome Reichmister, M.D., chief of Orthopedics at Sinai Hospital, was the driving force behind the symposium’s inclusion in the Sinai 150th anniversary celebration. Dr. Reichmister has been at Sinai for decades serving in different capacities over the years and is a strong advocate for education and a champion for Sinai Hospital, faculty and residents.
