Friends of Sheba 2nd Annual Women’s Community Luncheon

On Thursday, August 29, Friends of Sheba Medical Center hosted its second annual Women’s Community Luncheon at Woodland Hills Country Club in loving memory of David Shakiban. The event raised awareness for mental health—to directly support the launch of Sheba’s at-home nursing program and implementation of telemedicine for the treatment of patients with mental illness.

Over 250 guests attended the sold-out event led by Mistress of Ceremonies Jill Simonian. The keynote speaker was Professor Mark Weiser, head of the division of psychiatry at Sheba Medical Center. Dr. Susan Bookheimer was honored for her work centered on the organization of language and memory in the brain, both in healthy adults and children, in neurological conditions and developmental disorders.
