 For more than 60 years, the Women’s Guild has supported world-class healthcare through research and innovation. Women’s Guild members have raised nearly $50 million in support of Cedars-Sinai’s most critical work, including Women’s Guild Chair in Gastroenterology, Women’s Guild Simulation Center for Advanced Clinical Skills, Women’s Guild Lung Institute, Saul and Joyce Brandman Breast Center–A Project of Women’s Guild at Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute, and the recently announced Women’s Guild Neurology Project. The project supports innovative research and education for the understanding and treatment of complex neurological disorders, including stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, ALS, dementias, epilepsy and migraines. At today’s luncheon, Women’s Guild Cedars-Sinai President, Shelley Cooper, presented a $1 Million dollar check to Art Ochoa, VP of Advancement & Chief Advancement Officer, as the first installment towards Women’s Guild $7 million dollar pledge to Cedars-Sinai towards the Women’s Guild Neurology Project.
