The Reliant Foundation has recently announced that two new members have been appointed to its Board of Trustees: Joshua Greenberg, M.D., of Saint Vincent Medical Group, and Maria Paul of Robert Half Management Resources.
“Our Board underwent significant change this year as the Foundation became an independent charity in April,” says Thomas Sullivan, the Foundation’s Board chair. “We’re proud to have retained an incredibly supportive core group of trustees through that transition, and we’re equally proud to have Joshua and Maria bring their talents to our Board at this time.”
Dr. Greenberg, a cardiologist at Saint Vincent Medical Group’s Shore Drive location, is a firm believer in a whole-body approach to medicine. He has a particular interest in working with patients to afford them access to therapeutic activities such as massage, acupuncture, yoga, music and art, while they undergo treatment for cancer. Dr. Greenberg is the founder of Postures for Life, Inc., which is dedicated to providing yoga classes to underserved populations and people facing illness.
“I am honored to serve on the Board at the Reliant Foundation with so many other talented members of our community,” says Dr. Greenberg. “I am hopeful to have my interest in mind-body medicine enhance the Foundation’s mission.”
An assistant vice president at Robert Half Management Resources, Maria Paul’s personal and professional experiences drive her desire to support charitable work. As a career financier, Maria’s expertise has helped organizations – from Fortune 500 companies to small non-profits – achieve their financial goals. As a mother, the successful treatment of a very serious medical issue with her son drives her desire to give back to the medical community in myriad ways.
“My three sons would tell you that my belief in the responsibility and privilege of making a difference is woven into the fabric of our family,” says Paul. “Being a part of the Foundation Board provides me with an incredible opportunity to extend my passion for giving back to the community in ways that are far more impactful than what I could likely do on my own.”
“The Reliant Foundation’s mission is powered by our Trustees’ generosity of time and talent,” says Kelsa Zereski, president of the Foundation. “We’re very excited that Joshua and Maria have agreed to join our Board as we continue to seek new ways in which the Foundation can support critical health programs in our community.”
