Celebrating Service and Philanthropy: Special Room Dedication Held for Esteemed Physician

Todd Cohen, MD, FACC, Director of Electrophysiology at NYU Winthrop, celebrated two momentous occasions this winter: February 1, 2016 marked 20 years of service at NYU Winthrop for Dr. Cohen, coupled with a Room Dedication Ceremony as a tribute to his support of the new Research and Academic Center. Family, friends, colleagues and patients of Dr. Cohen gathered in the new Center to celebrate this milestone anni- versary, as well as the opening of the new Todd J. Cohen, MD and Mrs. Jill A. Cohen and Family Conference Room, located on the ground floor of the Center, facing Mineola Boulevard.

To begin the night, John Collins, President and CEO of NYU Winthrop, stressed the importance of diabetes research and finding a cure for the disease, the primary mission of the Research and Academic Center. “Dr. Cohen is a wonderful physician and cardiologist, and we are glad to be here this evening celebrating his contribution to medicine and to NYU Winthrop,” said Mr. Collins. “His philanthropy and commitment to the Research and Academic Center will further the cause to end diabetes and vastly improve the health of our community.”

(L.-R.) John Collins, President and CEO at NYU Winthrop Hospital , joins with Todd Cohen, MD, FACC, Director of Electrophysiology at NYU Winthrop; Dr. Cohen’s mother, Marilyn Vasen; Dr. Cohen’s wife, Jill Cohen; and E. Ramone Segree, Vice President of Development at NYU Winthrop, to celebrate his 20th anniversary and dedication of the new Todd J. Cohen, MD and Mrs. Jill A. Cohen and Family Conference Room.

Philanthropy is of the utmost importance to Dr. Cohen, who thanked the crowd for their support. “Where are we if we don’t give back? Who are we if we don’t give back?” he asked.

Dr. Cohen’s desire to give back extends beyond NYU Winthrop. Inspired by Ambassador Arnold Saltzman, one of his patients and founder of the Nassau County Museum of Art, Dr. Cohen is a part of a number of philanthropic endeavors. For almost a decade he has been involved with the Nassau County Museum of Art, where he has served on the Board of Trustees and as Chair of the Museum’s Art and Exhibition Committee. Several members of the Nassau County Museum of Art’s Board joined the celebration as well.

“Philanthropy is alive and well through the service and giving from Dr. Cohen and his family, and from the outpouring of regard and support by the guests and others who value and appreciate Dr. Cohen, NYU Winthrop, and the research being advanced and applied to our patients,” said E. Ramone Segree, Vice President of Development at NYU Winthrop.
