Surgery education suite dedicated
On June 4 the Department of Surgery dedicated its new Education Suite in honor of Warren D. Widmann, M.D. ’61, HS ’67, and his wife, Myra, in recognition of their generosity in funding the room’s renovations. “It is a pleasure to be able to make this contribution,” said Widmann. “It is possible because of what Yale medical school and Yale surgery did for me.” The Widmanns lived in Morristown, New Jersey for 30 years while he was in private practice in general thoracic surgery, general surgery and surgical critical care for 30 years. They then moved to Manhattan where he spent 10 years on the faculty at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons and he is now program director of surgery at Staten Island University Hospital.
