Forward Thinking in a Changing World

New York Social Diary—New York, NY—December 17, 2008

New York City's Hospital for Special Surgery's Benefit Committee hosted a gala dinner to benefit medical education. More than 375 people attended the event and more than $400,000 was raised for medical education. It was a magical evening with guests enjoying the entertainment by cabaret star KT Sullivan at the Rainbow Room.

"Ongoing medical education is essential to remain at the forefront of innovative procedures," said Cynthia D. Sculco, chairperson of the Benefit Committee and wife of Thomas P. Sculco, M.D., surgeon-in-chief at Hospital for Special Surgery.

"The hospital's top notch medical education program benefits patients and physicians throughout the world and underscores our leadership in the areas of orthopedics, rheumatology, anesthesiology, musculoskeletal radiology, rehabilitation and sports medicine. Support raised through this event helps grow HSS's award-winning medical education program."

A key component to HSS's education and training is the HSS Journal, a peer-reviewed journal published twice a year that features articles by the hospital's faculty and alumni. In each edition, the journal presents innovative research, clinical pathways and the latest in techniques to educate physicians and surgeons and to further the hospital's broad-based education mission.
