The foundation, which has been incorporated as “The Joseph and Helen Yezmens Levy Foundation Established in Memory of Their Daughter, Miriam Levy Finis,” will be devoted entirely to research and no funds will be spent for “bricks and mortar,” it was emphasized by the administration of the hospital. Research on high blood pressure has already begun. Other projects will soon be started, including a study of cancer.
