NEW HYDE PARK - NY — Northwell Health and the Americana Manhasset raised a record $725,000 for women’s health at the 24th Annual Katz Institute for Women’s Health Luncheon and Fashion Show featuring the Michael Kors Fall 2016 Collection. Three former patients took the runway on September 22 at Old Westbury Gardens and shared their personal stories as they walked alongside the physicians who impacted their lives. Fox 5 News anchor Kerry Drew emceed the event, presented by the Partners Council for Women’s Health, which supports the unique and complex health care needs of women.

“We know that women’s health needs are different from those of men and that women are the chief medical officers for their families,” said Dr. Stacey Rosen, Northwell Health’s vice president of women’s health. “We are committed to developing unique clinical programs, research, and education with the goal of enhancing the health of our communities.”

To date, the Katz Institute Luncheon and Fashion show has raised $8.2 million in support of women’s health. Money raised at this year’s event will increase the delivery of comprehensive health care, community-based wellness services, and preventive health education to women and their families.
