• Former Mayor Lin Honored as LA Healthcare Champion


    by Mitch Lehman

    Former San Marino Mayor and City Councilman Dr. Matthew Lin will be honored by the Los Angeles County Medical Association at the 2nd annual Los Angeles Healthcare Awards dinner for his “exemplary contributions to the medical profession,” it was recently announced.

    The dinner event will be held on Thursday, October 17 at the California Club in Downtown Los Angeles.

    Dr. Lin will receive the Innovation Award in the field of public education for his “leadership in shaping the future of healthcare.”

    “We take great pride in recognizing outstanding individuals and organizations who impact healthcare in our community, and particularly in improving care for the most underserved,” said Dr. Troy Elander, president of the Patient Care Foundation of Los Angeles County. “Dr. Lin has made a great impact in the community through his leadership in many areas including providing needed patient care through a variety of organizations, philanthropic endeavors, international and local relief efforts, education initiatives, and public service.”

    Lin has made several visits to disaster-torn regions of the world – at his own expense – to provide pediatric care for survivors including trips to Haiti and regions hit by the 2009 tsunami.

    The award recognizes individuals and institutions for exemplary contributions in improving access to quality healthcare in Los Angeles and is represented by more than 6,500 physicians.
