Ruth Blumberg

Ruth Blumberg was always grateful to her physician and friend Dr. George L. Engel. She wanted his legacy to live on forever, and her gifts in his memory at the University of Rochester accomplished just that. Her combination of outright and planned gifts maximized her giving potential, endowing a lecture series and teaching fellowship in Dr. Engel’s name and helping to support the Engel Professorship, among other gifts. Blumberg’s philanthropy will immortalize Dr. Engel’s contribution to medicine as a co-creator of the Biopsychosocial Model and promoter of the sanctity of the physician-patient relationship. By honoring someone who made a profound impact on her life and the lives of countless others, Ruth created her own legacy of gratitude.
