IN THEIR OWN WORDS

Yvonne and Barry z"l Cohen Book Fund

Dear Mrs. Cohen,

Your support, in addition to my scholarship for medical school, is helping me to succeed.

Since I received your help to buy a stethoscope, I have been able to discern different sounds coming from the heart, recognize certain problems related to the heart and the lungs, and better understand what the doctor is explaining regarding each patient. Now I understand how to better help the patients.

I am now better prepared for my exams in internal medicine every Sunday. The book I purchased "Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine" is the "bible" for medical students.

I am also very grateful because as a religious girl, I can study on Shabbat from a book and this is a real savior.

– Shlomit Lubich
