Dear Friends and Colleagues
Dr. Nabil Atweh is retiring from his role of Chairman of the Department of Surgery at YNHH Bridgeport Hospital. In addition to his many accomplishments in the realm of administration, research and clinical care, he has consistently been there for us as a colleague, a mentor, an advisor and a friend. As such, with his transition into a new phase of his life, many of us felt strongly that Dr. Atweh’s values should be perpetuated to future generations of surgeons by means of a philanthropic fund that will support faculty and staff growth in the following three areas:
- Leadership: Practicing true servant leadership and ensuring that successive leaders are given the skills to navigate an increasingly complex healthcare system
- Education: Enhancing the knowledge base of practitioners to stimulate innovation and bring the latest in care to the bedside
- Mentorship: Ensuring that leaders have the tools to provide professional and clinical guidance to our junior colleagues.
For those who practiced next to Dr. Atweh over the years, we know all too well that these values formed the unique culture that that our department was able to maintain throughout Dr. Atweh’s tenure. We hope that you will consider making a gift to establish the Dr. Nabil Atweh Trauma Education Fund at the Bridgeport Hospital Foundation in Dr. Atweh’s honor to help carry his vision forward for decades to come.
