The Brooklyn Daily Eagle and its publisher Dozier Hasty hosted the well-attended Champions and Visionaries of Healthcare event at Dyker Beach Golf Club on Monday, Dec. 3, recognizing doctors and healthcare associates from Brooklyn’s finest hospitals and caregiving facilities for their innovative work.

The leadership sponsors were Northwell Health, Zwanger Pesiri Radiology, Catholic Charities and Diocese of Brooklyn and Queens, New York-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital, NYC Health + Hospitals/Coney Island Hospital, Mount Sinai Brooklyn, Infinity Realty and Weng School NYC Inc.

“What kills more people than breast cancer,” asked Dr. Steven Mendelsohn, CEO of Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology (ZPRad). “The answer is heart attacks because they are unexpected and they can’t be screened for,” he answered. He spoke of all the strides made in mammography.
