Exciting Opportunity to Double Your Donation!
Every year we receive some 80 requests from Israeli doctors to support their fellowship training in North America--training they can't receive in Israel.
Between now and June 30, a generous donor has offered to match the next $25,000 in donations to help fund those amazing Israeli medical researchers and clinicians
When the Fellows eventually return to Israel, they bring home cutting-edge skills and advanced knowledge of their specialties.
