Honoring Dr. Steiner

Honoring Dr. Steiner

The article about the Evening of Roses at Seton Hall University mentioned paying tribute to the memory of Dr. Charles Steiner at the event. NJ Jewish News readers might be interested in learning about a campaign to honor Dr. Steiner.

Dr. Steiner, a pioneer in the field of osteopathic medicine who passed away last summer just before his 93rd birthday, was a well-known and beloved physician in Maplewood, having practiced in the area for close to 70 years. As a testimony to his profound impact across the state, the NJ Association of Osteopathic Physicians and Surgeons named him the “2011 DO of the Year.”

Members of the Steiner family, the alumni association of the UMDNJ School of Osteopathic Medicine, and leaders in the osteopathic community have started a campaign to raise $2 million in his name to support the Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine Residency Program at SOM.

Dr. Steiner’s dedication to the school and to osteopathic medicine in general helped chart the course for the success we have had at SOM, regarded as one of the top osteopathic schools in the country.

The residency training will allow the physician to treat patients using OMM, conduct research into its overall effectiveness, and participate in the education of students at SOM.

To contribute to the endowment, gifts can be made to the Foundation of UMDNJ, an affiliate of the New Jersey Health Foundation, at www.foundationofumdnj.org/make-a-gift or mailed to The Foundation of UMDNJ, 120 Albany St., Tower II, Suite 850, New Brunswick, NJ 08901.
