9:45 AM – 11:45 AM

Maha Mohamed, MD is the featured speaker at the 2018 Leisel Blockstein Lecture on Sunday, February 11, beginning at 9:45 am. Dr Mohamed’s presentation, The history of women in leadership: the past, present and future, will reflect on the current diversified background of humanity and past common geographic existence.

Dr. Mohamed earned her medical degree from the University of Khartoum School of Medicine, Sudan. She completed her residency at Mary Imogene Bassett Hospital and Clinics, Cooperstown, NY, and completed her geriatrics fellowships at George Washington University Hospital, Washington, D.C.; Nephrology fellowship at University of Maryland Medical Center, Baltimore, MD; and Transplant Nephrology fellowship at University of California San Francisco Medical Center, San Francisco, CA. Dr. Mohamed is board certified in Internal Medicine and Nephrology. Currently Dr. Mohamed is an assistant professor of Medicine at University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health and she is the Director of the Transplant Nephrology Fellowship Program.

The Leisel Blockstein annual lecture is a joint program of Temple Beth El and Jewish Social Services. Liesel M. Blockstein was a beloved member of the Beth El community and deeply involved in Jewish Social Services. Her husband, William L. Blockstein, also of blessed memory, established this lecture and scholarship fund to celebrate the achievements of Wisconsin women in politics, public service, religion, arts, literature, and music, as well as in other areas of endeavor. Beneficiaries of this fund also include Wisconsin residents (women) who are admitted to an accredited course of study at the Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion in the rabbinate, the cantorate, Jewish education, and Jewish communal service. There is no charge for the brunch. However, we ask that if you plan on attending, that you register no later than Wednesday, February 7, 2018.
