"Top Docs" Event and Sponsorship

Marty and team sponsored and attended the ‘Top Docs’ event at the Gem Theatre in downtown Detroit, MI again this year.  This event congratulated 174 physicians who were named 2016 “Top Docs” in the southeast Michigan region, according to the 17th annual "Top Docs" survey released by Hour Detroit Magazine. We want to express our appreciation to these physicians for their dedication as they provide leading-edge medicine and compassionate care to patients.

Forgotten Harvest

Marty and his team volunteered at Forgotten Harvest located in Oak Park, MI.   Here they focus on two big problems; fighting hunger and the unnecessary waste of food. We felt  very strongly that we were making an immediate impact as most of the food we helped prepare will be eaten within 24 hours. 

Alex's Lemonade Stand

Marty was fortunate to take part in delivering a grant awarded to Dr. Carl Koschmann, MD at the University of  Michigan.  Northwestern Mutual, through it's nonprofit partner Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) will support Dr. Koschmann's research for therapy for pediatric glioblastoma.  He was one of eight researchers selected for grants by Northwestern Mutual nationwide. 

In June of 2013, Marty, Robin and Steve gathered with some of their colleagues to help give back to the community. They volunteered with Cheeriodicals for Children's Hospital of Michigan. Cheeriodicals is an organization that accepts donations and volunteers to help put together boxes filled with goodies, and then donate the Cheeriodical boxes to the recipient.  240 big green boxes were donated to the Children's Hospital of Michigan from Northwestern Mutual. We were thrilled to be part of this great organization.
