NextGen Evening of Inspiration and Solidarity with Hebrew University’s Tzameret Students

On January 7, 2024, the AFHU Northeast Region hosted an “Evening of Inspiration and Solidarity” with young professionals and two students from Tzameret, Hebrew University’s elite military medicine training program at Houston Hall, an iconic NYC beer hall. The Tzameret students spoke about their experiences, from collecting post-combat data from soldiers to improve military medicine to being on rotation in New York City and their aspirations for the future. The event was hosted by NE Region LEAD (Leadership Empowerment and Development) members Sammi Edelson, Spencer Anson, and Marty Pollack. A special thank you to AFHU Northeast Board Member Jeremy Merrin and his wife Linda Blum for generously underwriting this special evening.

As the preeminent trailblazer in clinical medicine and research, HU’s Faculty of Medicine was selected by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) in 2009 to provide essential and specific training for future IDF physicians. The Tzameret program offers Hebrew University degree candidates the opportunity to receive specialized training in medicine and infrastructure that equips them to function as triage military personnel.
