Hauppauge, NY – In honor of Women’s History Month, the Suffolk County Legislature hosted a luncheon on Tuesday, March 20th, to honor women throughout the County for their service to their communities. Legislator William R. Spencer M.D. recognized Dr. Eve Meltzer-Krief as the “Woman of Distinction” for the 18th Legislative District.
“Dr. Eve Meltzer-Krief has boundless energy when it comes to serving the community. Whether it is treating her patients as a pediatrician or out in the community advocating for healthcare and justice for all people, she generously gives of herself for the greater good. To put it simply, she is an inspiration,” stated Legislator William R. Spencer, M.D.
In an effort to unify those divided within our communities and to address recent acts of hate, Dr. Eve Meltzer-Krief formed the Long Island Inclusive Communities Against Hate (LIICAH). The group is inclusive of faith leaders, educators and elected officials who are working together to foster initiatives toward mutual respect and understanding. Dr. Meltzer-Krief has certainly distinguished herself as a healer and a unifier.
