About My Campaign

Join NYU Langone Health's Department of Pediatrics and Department of Surgery in honoring Howard Ginsburg, MD (a surprise for Howard!)

As you may have heard, Dr. Howard Ginsburg -- an incredible doctor who has made a positive impact on the lives of countless children and families during his 40+ years at NYU Langone -- recently announced his retirement. We are reaching out to Howard’s friends, supporters, and current and former colleagues in the hope that you’ll help us honor his contributions to our health system and our patients, as his time at NYU Langone comes to a close.

Please note that Howard is not aware of this effort – thank you for keeping this between us!

Howard has created an exceptional legacy. As the leader of our Pediatric Surgery Division, his steady voice and advocacy have been at the core of our mission to provide unparalleled care to families who turn to us during their times of need. His patients know him for his expertise and empathy, which have helped so many children heal. And, his influence extends well beyond NYU Langone through the innumerable physicians he’s trained over the decades, all infused with his drive for excellence and compassionate approach to care.

This is the perfect moment to express our appreciation for Howard. In the coming weeks, we are hoping to raise enough funds to establish the Howard B. Ginsburg Endowed Fellowship in Pediatric Surgery, which will recognize Howard’s legacy as a physician, leader and mentor for generations to come, and have a lasting impact on our physicians, trainees, patients and the field of pediatric surgery at large.

Please consider joining us in this effort by making a gift in honor of Howard. You may make your gift online using this fundraising page. Alternatively, a check may be made payable to NYU Langone Health with a memo note of “Howard Ginsburg Endowment” and sent to NYU Langone Health's Office of Development, One Park Avenue, 5th Floor, New York, NY 10016. If you have questions, please reach out to Wendy Sothern in the Office of Development at or 212-404-3576.

We plan to surprise Howard later this year with this special recognition – please keep this effort under wraps until then!

Thank you for helping us honor Howard in this meaningful way.

With gratitude,

Catherine S. Manno, MD
