Emily Sonnenblick, M.D., of the prestigious Rosetta Radiology Group, was honored last week by The American Cancer Society at The Mothers of the Year 2012 Awards Luncheon for her cutting edge work in women’s imaging and her dedication to family values and community outreach.
Dr. Sonnenblick and the two other women that were honored at the annual luncheon, Grace Hightower De Niro and Diane Reidy-Lagunes, M.D., represent the epitome of career women, wives and mothers in the community for their compassion and dedication to advancements in cancer treatment. The Mother of the Year Award aims to recognize exemplary work in philanthropy and medicine and the dynamic women who make the work of the American Cancer Society possible. Sonnenblick is honored to join the ranks of other beneficial women who have supported important research, detection and prevention programs like Tory Burch, Dr. Deborah Axelrod, Muffie Potter Aston and Dr. Freya Schnabel.
In her acceptance speech, Dr. Sonnenblick commented saying, “The American Cancer Society is a powerful advocate for sound screening guidelines for cancers. It plays a role as a beacon and has not given in to revisionist and misinformed attitudes towards screening.” Most notably recognized for her work in Women’s Imaging at Rosetta Radiology, Sonnenblick is grateful to the American Cancer Society for the opportunity to be recognized for her dedication to early detection and treatment. She is also grateful for her supportive staff and colleagues at Rosetta Radiology and her family for sharing her mission of ridding the world of cancer.
