NEW YORK—October 26, 2006
Before the New York City Opera stages its production of “The Elixir of Love” on Friday, November 10, Hospital for Special Surgery’s Benefit Committee will be mixing up its own special prescription, a gala dinner to benefit medical education billed as “A Night at the Opera.”
As part of its ongoing commitment to support medical education, Hospital for Special Surgery’s Benefit Committee is hosting “A Night at the Opera” at the promenade of the New York State Theater at Lincoln Center. More than 300 guests are expected at the dinner that follows.
“Medical education is a cornerstone of the hospital’s mission,” said Cynthia P. Sculco, chairperson of the Benefit Committee and wife of Thomas P. Sculco, M.D., surgeon-in-chief at New York’s Hospital for Special Surgery.
“Funds raised at this event will allow Hospital for Special surgery to continue to provide award-winning education and training in the fields of orthopaedics, rheumatology, rehabilitation and sports medicine.”
A key component to their education and training is the HSS Journal, a Musculoskeletal Journal of Hospital for Special Surgery, a peer-reviewed journal published twice a year that features articles by Hospital for Special Surgery faculty and alumni. In each edition, the journal presents innovative research, clinical pathways and the latest in techniques to educate the orthopaedic and musculoskeletal community and to further the hospital's broad-based education mission.
“We greatly look forward to sharing this wonderful evening with friends and colleagues for the benefit of medicine,” added Mrs. Sculco. “Through our efforts, Hospital for Special Surgery will enhance its education and training programs that benefit patients and physicians across the globe.”
