Physicians’ Sweethearts Scholarship Benefit Brunch

Physicians gathered with their Greater Pasadena Alliance for Medicine (GPAM) sweethearts for a traditional medical student scholarship benefit in early March, just prior to the COVID-19 pandemic essentially canceled most gatherings. Sixty turned out to enjoy camaraderie, fine food and a talented guitarist at the annual event hosted by GPAM, an all-volunteer, independent nonprofit organization.
Dr. Paul Gilbert, serving as the emcee, thanked President Halaine Rose and the event team of Joanne and Gordon Sasaki, Vivien Stanley and Bill Foran, Cindy Gilbert, Debra Fallon, Jan Moritz and Faye Eggerding.
Gilbert and Rose presented a segment honoring the memory of neurosurgeon William Caton, who was an ardent champion of GPAM sweethearts partnering with and supporting physicians, the medical family, and health education. Dr. Amy Caton Polverini, the daughter of honoree William and Cathy, and husband Lance were present.
For membership information on the 90-member nonprofit GPAM, composed of physicians, spouses, and sponsored “Friends of Medicine,” contact Halaine Rose at hhroses2@gmail.com.
