(May 20 – 23, 2019) Stars in Our Midst: Robert “Rosey” Rosenbloom & Richard Bonforte

It’s a little known secret about NYCHSRO/MedReview’s Vice President of Legal Affairs Bob Rosenbloom, that he was at one time a college basketball star. Indeed, in the 1970s, when he started for the Yeshiva University basketball team for all four years and was team captain in his senior year, he appeared on NBC News with Chuck Scarborough demonstrating his prowess on the YU court by scoring one of many baskets. In those days, his friends and fans knew him as “Rosey” Rosenbloom, the fourth all-time leading scorer at YU back then.

On May 23, NYCHSRO/MedReview’s own Hall of Famer will be honored at the Annual Hall of Fame Dinner of the Yeshiva HS Alumni Basketball Association. Bob still plays basketball weekly, except in the recent weeks when he is recovering from an on-court injury.


Board Member Richard J. Bonforte, MD, FAAP, is receiving the Community Spirit Award at the LSA Family Health Service Gala on May 20. LSA is an organization that provides food assistance and health, education, and family support services in East Harlem and surroundings. Dr. Bonforte has been a board member since 1976 and served as Board Chair from 1989 to 1998.
