A Record-Breaking $1.4 Million Raised to Benefit Urology Research and Care
Dedicated supporters braved the snowstorm to celebrate 25 years with Herbert Lepor, MD
, as professor and Martin Spatz Chair of NYU Langone Health’s Department of Urology. This year’s FUNraiser, hosted by Diane and Joseph Steinberg and Jane and David Walentas at St. Ann’s Warehouse, the performing arts institution in DUMBO, Brooklyn, shined the spotlight on Dr. Lepor’s exemplary service and the extraordinary trajectory of the urology department.
For over a decade, proceeds from the Urology FUNraiser have benefitted innovative research and educational programs in urology. Faculty presentations showcased just a few of this year’s exciting advances in research and patient care, including new approaches to prostate cancer and lesser-known urologic conditions. Andrew D. Hamilton, president of New York University, praised the urology department, which has flourished under Dr. Lepor’s leadership: “The department has become one of the best in the nation, exponentially increasing NIH research funding and providing expert, compassionate patient care in more than 10 subspecialties.”
