Introducing Our New Executive Director: Kristen Young


Kristen has joined the Harold E. Eisenberg Foundation as our new Executive Director, bringing many years of nonprofit leadership experience to serve our mission. Kristen's energy, creativity, and vision, combined with her passion to continue HEEF's mission of supporting GI cancer research and providing educational opportunities for students, will be integral as we move into the future. The Board of Directors could not be more pleased with the selection of Kristen as Executive Director and believe HEEF will continue to flourish under her leadership.



Announcing Our 2022-2023 Cancer Research Scholar

We recently awarded $50,000 to Research Scholar Arthur Prindle, Ph.D., who is using his funding to investigate engineered probiotics for early detection of inflammation, and prevention of tumorigenesis of the colon. The scholar award gives scientists the necessary resources and time needed to ask novel research questions and explore new ideas related to GI cancers.


Dr. Arthur Prindle is an Assistant Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics at the Northwestern University McCormick School of Engineering

A Day of Fun in the Industry!
With our friends from Embarc & Pine Tree


We're already reminiscing about the fantastic day we had in collaboration with Embarc and Pine Tree, where we welcomed students from Chicago Tech Academy for an industry-focused day of FUN learning!

HEEF's very own Associate Board member and Property Manager at Pine Tree, Cassandra Murff, coordinated a day where students had the opportunity to learn about the industry and about the roles and career paths possible.

The day was moderated by Embarc's fabulous Sandra Ortiz-Ortega and featured some very special speakers: Peter Eisenberg, Collete English Dixon, and Peter Borzak of our Board of Directors shared their experiences and insights with the lucky students.


Congratulations to Our 2022 Real Estate Education Award Winner!

At our recent Annual Meeting, we recognized Mike Mallon's outstanding volunteership and dedication to the Harold E. Eisenberg Foundation through his countless mentorships of students throughout the nation.


Generosity from donors like you helps us fulfill our mission of fighting gastrointestinal cancers and providing unique educational opportunities to real estate students. Please consider making a Donation or Tribute Gift in honor of a loved one today.
