South Nassau Communities Hospital Receives Grant to Establish Medical Lecture Series.

Oceanside, NY, February 13, 2019 --( The Mudra Foundation: Art for a Cause has agreed to underwrite an annual medical education lecture series that will focus on innovations and research in medicine to further medical education at South Nassau Communities Hospital.

The lectures will cover a wide range of topics and will be open to medical professionals and to the public. The inaugural lecture, "Bloodless Medicine and Surgery, An Introduction to the Jehovah's Witness Patient," was held February 4.

The Mudra Foundation, based in Muttontown, NY, was founded by Dr. (Mrs.) Arti Datta & Dr. Rajiv Datta, Chair of the Department of Surgery and Director of the Gertrude and Louis Feil Cancer Center at South Nassau. The foundation uses the artistic medium of dance and music to raise funds and awareness to aid the mission and vision of other non-profit educational and charitable organizations.

"Each lecture will serve as a platform to herald and learn about the plans, projects and goals that distinguished physicians and medical professionals are pursuing or implementing to meet the world's need for high-quality, accessible medicine," said Dr. Arti Datta, Artistic Director of Mudra Dance Studio, Muttontown, NY, and founding president of the foundation.

South Nassau has a growing role as a teaching hospital. Currently, the hospital staff has resident training programs in surgery, OB/GYN, family medicine, podiatry and is starting an internal medicine residency program this year. Dr. Rajiv Datta said he and his family decided to underwrite the lecture series as a way of fostering medical education at South Nassau, where he has spent the bulk of his career as a physician leader, overseeing the Department of Surgery.

The inaugural lecture, "Bloodless Medicine and Surgery, An Introduction to the Jehovah's Witness Patient," was held February 4 and presented by Cedric K. Olivera, MD, MS, FACOG, FACS, assistant clinical professor, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Division of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.

"I felt it was important for us to find a way to give back to the hospital that has been so good to us and to the community," Dr. Rajiv Datta said.
