Barry Green Continues Longtime Support
With a recent donation of $10,000 to the Stroke Center for research, Barry Green has added to a long history of assistance to Jefferson Medical College and to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. In appreciation of his generous gifts, Jefferson has awarded him the gold-headed physician's cane recognizing him as a new Fellow of Thomas Jefferson University.
Mr. Green's latest gift will support research at the Stroke Center by sponsoring a lectureship to be named after Rodney D. Bell, MD, who has treated Mr. Green. The purpose of the Rodney D. Bell, MD, Lectureship is to bring a speaker of national prominence to Jefferson each year in order to bring area physicians up to date on current treatments for stroke and on the latest research for preventing it. The first lecture will be held on November 7, 1997.
Prominent among Mr. Green's other gifts to Jefferson is his support of research at the Barolat Pain and Paralysis program at Jefferson Medical College. Mr. Green is a founding member of the committee to raise funds for the Barolat program, which is dedicated to attacking the problem of pain and paralysis due to neuromuscular disorders.
"Mr. Green's involvement with Jefferson throughout the years is a source of encouragement to us," said Jefferson President Paul C. Brucker, MD "Both his support and participation are helping Jefferson explore enhanced treatment options for people with debilitating pain and paralysis, and for stroke and cancer patients."
In addition to his gifts to the Stroke Center and to the Barolat Pain and Paralysis program, Mr. Green has also supported the Jefferson Comprehensive Colorectal Cancer Center.
Mr. Green is the President of International Lithographing, located in Philadelphia, PA, which is among the largest full-color web and sheet-fed printers in the city.
