The Board of Governors
The Cedars-Sinai Board of Governors (BOG) is an energetic community of philanthropic leaders who are helping define the future of healthcare. Established by the Board of Directors in 1971, the BOG has become the primary fundraising and leadership development group at Cedars-Sinai. Our mission is to support Cedars-Sinai's foremost clinical programs, biomedical research and community outreach by providing financial resources, educational experiences and volunteer opportunities.
One of only a few centers of its kind in the country, the Board of Governors Innovation Center brings together researchers and clinicians from across Cedars-Sinai to develop precise early-detection protocols and therapies that will vastly improve a patient's health outcomes.
“The Cedars-Sinai Board of Governors continues to support cutting-edge medical advancements through our priority project, the Board of Governors Innovation Center. By studying single cells of the body, the Innovation Center is poised to change medicine for some of our most challenging diseases. Members of the Board of Governors help advance this critical research and provide support to the broader medical center. Members also have access to educational programs, volunteer opportunities and social events throughout the year.”
