Padma Lakshmi at the 2010 EFA Holiday Celebration

Q:  Padma could you tell us a little bit about what the collaboration with Lenox Hill Hospital means to you personally?

A:  I think Lenox Hill Hospital is a great institution in this city, and they have been a part of the New York life for a long time.  They have taken care of, you know, millions of New Yorkers when they have needed it and I think it is a great hospital.  They have a great Gynecology Department.  I had my child there and it’s nice to be partnering with them.  So it’s very exciting.

Q:  And a little bit about the Center for Excellence and how this is important development for endometriosis and for the foundation itself.  How that makes you feel to reach this landmark for the foundation?

A:  I think, you know, the EFA is a very young organization.  We just started really couple of year ago, so this a lot for us.  It means a lot to us.  It’s very important to do the first Center of Excellence here is also a big milestone for us.  So we are very excited.

Thank you.
