Donna ShalalaThe UM Alumni Association is pleased to share news that Former President Donna Shalala is home from the hospital after suffering a stroke last month.

Shalala released this statement: "I’m out! Thanks to the amazing work of the stroke team—doctors and nurses—at Mount Sinai Roosevelt and the Mount Sinai Health System. Today I am feeling strong and ready to get back to work. I’ve been deeply moved by the outpouring of well wishes I’ve received these last few days from friends and colleagues.
