Family and friends of Myra Rubenstein Weis honor her life by supporting wellness and cancer survivorship programs at NorthShore University HealthSystem (NorthShore). Myra Rubenstein Weis was actively involved in the Highland Park community. After being diagnosed with breast cancer, she lived for 10 years before the disease claimed her life in 1990.  Her sister, Eileen Rubenstein Goldstein, and her brother-in-law, Paul D. Goldstein, MD, continue to honor Myra's life and her upbeat spirit by hosting an annual spring benefit luncheon with a group of dedicated volunteers and friends who plan the event. Thank you to the countless supporters who contribute so generously to these free health education programs for our community.

On Wednesday, May 3, 2017, the 21st annual MRW Health Resource Center Benefit Luncheon welcomed more than 320 attendees at the Highland Park Country Club. The Luncheon featured Michael Caplan, MD as keynote speaker with Mary Ann Ahern as emcee. Katharine Yao, MD was the honoree at the day themed “The Future of Medicine is YOU.”

Since 2006, the Benefit has funded the  Living in the Future (LIFE) Cancer Survivorship Program, including sponsorship of the Myra Rubenstein Weis Cancer Survivorship Seminars. The free educational lectures are open to the public and include topics of importance to cancer survivors, including nutrition, exercise and genetics. 

In addition to the LIFE Program, funds raised from the Luncheon will support an innovative, pilot project that will educate the next generation about personalized medicine and how genomics is transforming healthcare.

Funds also support the Myra Rubenstein Weis Health Resource Center, which is dedicated to promoting health education and awareness to the communities served by Highland Park Hospital and NorthShore.
