Judy and J. John Goodman give $50,000 gift to Scripps Florida

JUPITER, FL November 18, 2010 For Immediate Release - The Scripps Research Institute has announced a $50,000 gift from Palm Beach residents Judy and J. John Goodman, M.D., to Scripps Florida. The gift will support both the work of Professor Thomas Kodadek, Ph.D., in the development of a new approach to detect and treat Type I diabetes, as well as the Scripps Research graduate program endowment.

"We are grateful to Jay and Judy for their ardent support of Scripps Florida," said Barbara Suflas Noble, Scripps Florida's director of external affairs. "Their generous contribution will assist research that may lead to better health and an improved quality of life for millions."

Dr. Goodman is a practicing dermatologist and a well-known clinical researcher who has consulted on clinical research studies for major pharmaceutical companies. Judy Goodman is an attorney who consults with clients on issues in healthcare, strategy, and research.

"One of our children suffers from Type 1 diabetes," said Judy Goodman, "and we'd all like to see a cure."

"Scripps is integral to our community's infrastructure it deserves support," said Dr. Goodman. "They are bringing in highly educated and accomplished young scientists. I only wish in my many years in practice and research here, we'd had the benefit of Scripps Florida's scientific collaboration and academic depth the whole time."

The Goodmans were among the earliest supporters of Scripps Florida. Judy Goodman served on one of Scripps Florida's first advisory groups in 2004 and the Goodmans met with many of the institute's scientists at the time as an informal welcome wagon.

The Goodmans are also founder members of the Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, where Judy Goodman serves as a Life Trustee, and they donated a Media Room at Boston Latin School, Dr. Goodman's alma mater.
