MDY HS Students Tour Mount Sinai Hospital

Last month, students from Magen David Yeshiva High School’s Medical Explorers Club visited Mount Sinai Hospital, located in Midwood, Brooklyn. As an acute care specialized hospital, the students had the rarest opportunity to walk straight through the entrance into the emergency room during its busiest hours. Both the Club Director, Dr. Jack Fatiha, MD, and Mr. Shimmy Braun, Senior Director at Mount Sinai Hospital Brooklyn, led the trip.

The students, accompanied by Ms. Sarah Gray, were intrigued by the fast-paced environment and the patients’ urgent needs. Dr. Peter Shearer, MD, Emergency Medicine Specialist, elaborated on some of the most common medical devices used in an ER, from the TeladocHealth (which makes use of virtual medical services) to a close-up view of a computed tomography (CT) scan.

The trip allowed the MDY students to get a firsthand look at emergency medicine, which is unusual for high school students who are not patients themselves. This was an eye-opening trip, which offered a special opportunity for students interested in a medical career.

Monthly Update from Assemblywoman Kim Eulner and Assemblywoman Marilyn Piperno

This month, we celebrate our first full year in office as the dutifully elected Assemblywomen of the 11th Legislative District. It is a tremendous honor to represent our constituents, and we are forever grateful for the trust bestowed upon us. We greatly look forward to another year of providing accountable and approachable leadership

A new year provides an opportunity to reflect on all that we have achieved on behalf of the people of New Jersey. However, it is also a reminder that there is much more to do – that fighting for the rights and freedoms of every individual in our state does not end with one year’s accomplishments

We have made it our mission to be readily available and willing to fight for you and your family 365 days a year. With the help of our incredible staff, we successfully introduced 90 pieces of legislation in our first year alone and had 17 co-sponsored bills signed by Governor Murphy. We also brought mobile office hours to 12 of our municipalities while securing assistance for constituents in need across the district

From day one, we have worked hard to make New Jersey safer and more affordable, advocating for reforms to improve residents’ quality of life. But despite our hard work, there is still much to be done. So now, more than ever, is the time to stand together and work towards a common goal – to improve the state we call home and make New Jersey more accessible and livable for all its citizens for years to come.
