Joan and Art Greenfield’s granddaughter, Chloe Greenfield, is attending Victoria University in Melbourne, Australia this semester. She is a junior at Eastern Carolina University and is an active supporter of Israel on campus. This semester overseas follows one month in Israel on Birthright and ZOA-sponsored trips. The Greenfields’ grandson, Alex Greenfield of Far Rockaway, N.Y., is showing his paintings at the Coconut Grove (Florida) Art Festival. He was interviewed by The Travel Channel for a show to be aired later this year. Alex and wife, Tammy, are the parents of the Greenfields’ first great-granddaughter, Esther. Chloe and Alex are the children of Dr. Dwynn Greenfield and Aimee Greenfield.

Marc Lubitz, a student with the Boonshoft School of Medicine Class of 2018, had an article published in the February issue of JAMA Otolaryngology–Head & Neck Surgery, a peer-reviewed academic journal for ENT surgeons. In the article, Marc urges physicians to adopt the official 2011 name change of a rare disease — from Wegener granulomatosis to granulomatosis with polyangiitis — to avoid using the name of the Nazi scientist who discovered it.
