An educational and inspirational day spent out on Long Island for The Katz Institute for Women’s Health’s annual Women’s Conference, “A Better You Today.” Hoda Kotb was the Key Note Speaker, and she is as lovely as she is witty as she is bright.
Hoda told her story of how her battle with breast cancer eventually gave her the guts to go for The Today Show gig. She gave us an intimate piece of herself and it was uplifting and beautiful. I have seen Hoda walking around the city a few times, and hope to bump into her again. #HodaKotb #HeyHoda
Over 600 women came out to honor outstanding female doctors for their incredible accomplishments and to learn more about women’s health issues. It was our absolute honor to be a part of this incredible day.
Dr. Rob did a talk on “Vitamins, Supplements and Fad Diets” to a sold-out room; and I did a presentation and simple yoga class for a gracious group of ladies. Thank you so much for your presence, smiles, good vibes and support.
Thank you to Drs. Stacey Rosen and Jennifer Mieres, two of the smartest, coolest and most selfless women out there. Your patients, colleagues, and community are lucky to have you!
Check out the 4th hour of The Today Show tomorrow for Hoda’s pictures from today…on Today!
This weekend, Dr. Rob had a photo shoot with the New York Post regarding the Victory Greens urban rooftop farm at Lenox Hill Hospital. Be sure to buy the New York Post this Wednesday to read Dr. Rob’s interview and to learn more about #VictoryGreens!
P.S. Dr. Rob is “sporting” his playoff beard in honor of the New York Rangers. He couldn’t shave it, not even for his mother on Mother’s Day. A playoff beard is the superstitious practice of a National Hockey League player not shaving his beard during the Stanley Cup playoffs. The player stops shaving when his team enters the playoffs and does not shave until his team is eliminated or wins the Stanley Cup. The tradition was started in the 1980s by the New York Islanders. #HeThinksHeIsAPlayer #HolyPuck
Earth Day! After a long day of planting, here are the “fruits” of Farmer Kristin’s labor on the Victory Greens rooftop at Lenox Hill Hospital! What an amazing sight! To think, this rooftop had been closed for over eight years and used to be where people went outside to smoke! Now, it’s a healthful and colorful oasis for staff to relax and enjoy!
Once the herbs and greens grow a little more, the hospital kitchen will be using them in their foods. Our hope is that Victory Greens will continue to blossom until the patients of Lenox Hill Hospital are eating more organic, healthy foods plucked right from the rooftop. The goal: From rooftop to bedside. One small seed at a time…. Stay tuned!
Here is Farmer Kristin “planting the seeds of change” for the new Spring season up on the Victory Greens rooftop at Lenox Hill Hospital. Farmer Kristin drove out to the ends of Long Island to get the best organic soil, herbs and greens so they could be planted in time for Earth Day! As you can see, Dr. Rob also got his hands dirty in the process so he could be part of the change.
It’s wonderful to witness many Lenox Hill Hospital staff enjoying Victory Greens for lunch, leisure or just a breath of fresh air! We are so honored to have been a part of the planting process and we cannot wait to see the seeds sprout just in time for Spring and Summer! Stay tuned for many more updates on Victory Greens!
Spreading the Fare Wellness from sunny Palm Beach, Florida, to (a surprisingly) snowy Washington, D.C.:
Dr. Rob presented a talk to local residents and snow birds at The Breakers: A mini medical school on “The Art and Science of Living Healthfully” and another talk on getting “More Zzzzz’s.”
The following week, he was off to D.C. for a talk at the National Hispanic Medical Association on “Doctors in the Kitchen” followed by an awards gala dinner afterwards.
Off to SoCal soon. Stay tuned!

Avoiding meat, using quinoa instead of rice and swapping edamame for green peas makes this vegan paella super healthy.
Buying some beautiful Spring flowers for your space increases the chi and is always good Feng Shui. Sun is slowly setting in a colorfully cloudless sky….
