“I am honored to be recognized for my strong and valued partnership with Integrated Medical Foundation, and for our shared commitment to improve health care through early detection and education,” said Mendelsohn. “Together with IMF, Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology looks forward to continuing to find ways to help men understand the importance of getting a prostate cancer screening and delivering solutions that help practitioners provide screenings that are so critical.”

“Early detection saves lives,” said Rhonda Samuel, executive director of IMF. “We are thrilled to have presented these awards to three very deserving honorees who are committed to early detection of prostate and breast cancer.”
