ADL to honor Yale-New Haven Hospital president

The Connecticut Region of the Anti-Defamation League will honor Marna P. Borgstrom, president and CEO of Yale-New Haven Hospital and the Yale New Haven Health System at ADL’s annual Greater New Haven Torch of Liberty Award Dinner May 27.

Borgstrom will be honored for her leadership and "outstanding contributions to the community and her commitment to civil rights," the ADL said in a statement.

“Marna has been an extraordinary leader in New Haven and throughout the state of Connecticut,” Doug Skalka, ADL’s New Haven chairman, said in the statement. “Her commitment to the ideals of ADL to build bridges of understanding between communities and to combat bigotry and hatred in all forms is clear. We are delighted to recognize her leadership at this year’s Torch of Liberty dinner.”

Borgstrom, shown, said, “I am truly honored to be recognized by such an important organization as the Anti-Defamation League.”

“I have great respect for the work of ADL, which provides critically important education in our community and offers hope to those who experience many forms of discrimination. On behalf of the nearly 8,000 Yale-New Haven Hospital employees and those throughout the Yale New Haven Health System, I am delighted to participate in this important event," she said, also in the statement.
