Beth Israel Deaconess Urged to Investigate Member of Board of Overseers Who Raised Millions for Madoff
Date:2/18/2009

The Board of Overseers of BIDMC is charged with supporting the charitable endeavors of the organization and acting as goodwill ambassadors to the community. Given the high profile nature of the scandal, and its effect on several of BIDMC's largest donor
