Peter Pressman, MD, and his wife, Peggy, share a long history with Weill Cornell Medicine. For more than 35 years, they collaborated in his medical practice, offering breast cancer patients the most advanced surgical treatments available to manage the disease.
In 2013, a generous donor helped establish a professorship in Peter Pressman’s name.
The couple, who contributed funding for the professorship, recently expanded their support
of Weill Cornell Medicine with two separate charitable gift annuities totaling $200,000.
“Gift annuities allow us to contribute now and, in return, receive fixed regular payments that help bolster our retirement income,” says Peter Pressman, a retired breast surgeon. “Philanthropy is a personal choice, but assuring excellence in patient care and
research has always been a priority for us.” The Peter I. Pressman, MD, Professorship of Surgery was awarded in 2014 to Todd Evans, PhD, vice chair for research and chief of the Division of Research in the Department of Surgery.
“Through research, we will continue to improve the lives of patients,” says Peter Pressman.
“And through charitable giving, we can all support the important work being done at Weill Cornell
By creating a legacy gift to benefit Weill Cornell–which relies on charitable gifts, large and
small–the Pressmans hope to set an example for others who would like to make a difference.
“Anyone can be a philanthropist,” says Peter Pressman. “There are many creative ways that
make it easy to give.”
