Michael J. Fosina, MPH, FACHE, president of NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital, and senior vice president of NewYork-Presbyterian, joined 436 other swimmers at the 27th annual Swim Across America Long Island Sound open water swim, which took place on July 27 in Larchmont. As an active participant who swam 5K on behalf of the hospital, Mr. Fosina helped raise $1.3 million for local cancer research, prevention and support services.
“I am thrilled to participate in Swim Across America’s Long Island Sound open water swim to raise awareness and funds for cancer research in our community,” said Mr. Fosina. “As a lifelong competitive swimmer, New Rochelle resident and now president of NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital, I am proud to do my part to help Westchester County residents and beyond have access to the best cancer care possible.”
Proceeds from the swim will support pediatric oncology research at NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital, the Swim Across America Laboratory at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and patient services at the Westchester-based Cancer Support Team.
