I love the fact that the Einstein society gives people an opportunity for the possibilities that they see in something.”
Maddy Rovinsky’s is passionate about helping others, and she’s spent most of her life living out her passion. She spent more than 30 years in the School District of Philadelphia as a teacher of the visually impaired and now continues her work of giving back through Einstein.
Twenty years ago, a friend asked Maddy to take a meeting with someone from the Albert Einstein Society. Her family had used Einstein doctors when she was growing up, and she was intrigued.
“I went to one meeting for the Einstein Society,” Maddy recalls. “Ever since that meeting, I’ve been very active with the society, and now I’m a co-chair.”
The Albert Einstein society harnesses the power of Einstein employees and physicians to solve some of today’s most exciting healthcare challenges by awarding grants to employees with the best ideas.
Maddy looked down at her shooting star necklace and smiled.
“The shooting star means a lot to me because it represents possibilities. I love the fact that the Einstein society gives people an opportunity to strive for the possibilities that they see in something. That’s what makes us More than Medicine.”
