Legacy Society welcomes new members
The Sam Ruth Legacy Society met in September 2016 for a luncheon that included a guest speaker and a ceremony to welcome new members.
Dr. Nasreen Khatri, a registered clinical psychologist at Baycrest, spoke about how exercise and other changes in daily routine can improve brain health.
Baycrest Foundation Board Vice-Chair Anita Lapidus welcomed new members to the society.
After accepting her certificate, Sharyn Salsberg Ezrin spoke about her family’s longstanding connection to Baycrest.
“It’s wonderful to spend time at this year’s Sam Ruth Legacy luncheon with people who also have affection for Baycrest, and who recognize what a special place it is,” she said.
