Feinstein Institute’s Summer Concert A Success

Usher was the headliner at Northwell Health’s annual summer concert.

American singer-songwriter Usher recently headlined Northwell Health’s Feinstein Institutes for Medical Research 14th annual summer concert, raising more than $3.4 million to support medical innovations.

“We are grateful to our benefactors and philanthropists—their support enables us to achieve our not-for-profit mission to produce knowledge to cure disease,” said Kevin J. Tracey, MD, president and CEO of the Feinstein Institutes.

Over the last 14 years, the Feinstein Concert has raised more than $25 million to drive research innovation and growth. This event helps Northwell continue to pioneer solutions and unearth new discoveries that are impacting the trajectory of medicine around the world.

At this year’s event, on July 11 at Old Westbury Gardens, Kristina Deligiannidis, MD, a reproductive psychiatrist, and Theodoros Zanos, PhD, a neural engineer, spoke about the need to rapidly surface clinical answers and develop innovative treatments to improve health care and save lives. Dr. Deligiannidis mentioned her innovative and improved approaches to treating depression, particularly postpartum depression, and Dr. Zanos discussed pursuing the field of bioelectronic medicine to develop customized, drug-free treatment for people suffering from a wide range of autoimmune diseases.

“As Northwell continues to grow, philanthropy is even more important to fulfilling our mission of improving the health and the lives of the people in our communities who rely on us,” said Michael Epstein, chairman of Northwell’s Board of Trustees. “Through the continued generosity of our organization’s supporters, staff and leadership, we are positioned to propel our philanthropic energy behind research to new heights. I’m excited to help lead that charge.”

Upscale décor and catering for the Feinstein Institutes Summer Concert was provided by Lawrence Scott Events.
