The event was an announcement to the public for the receipt of the 2nd major NIH award studying the benefit of providing cord blood to full term infants. Over 20 world renowned Obstetricians and Neonatologists from all over the world participated in the Sharp led trial. This was an opportunity to meet the investigators and discuss the impact of this study globally.
Every year over 10 million babies are not breathing at birth and are deprived by a potentially life-saving treatment. This study could provide evidence for one of the greatest intervention in modern medicine.
The Alexander and Eva Nemeth Foundation is proud to sponsor the work being done through the Neonatal Research Institute under the guidance and expertise of Dr. Anup Katheria. It is also a source of great pride that our babies, here in San Diego, have access to developmental follow-up visits after going home from the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Sharp Mary Birch at the Nemeth NICU Follow Up Clinic under the guidance of child development expert, Julie Novak, Executive Director and Program Manager.
On April 17, 2018 we were happy to host an intimate site dedication of The Nemeth NICU Follow Up Clinic at the Sharp Mary Birch Hospital.
Our guests were welcomed with “wishing leaves” that enabled them to record their wishes and thoughts for the clinic and their patients.
They were also introduced to floor plans and layouts of the site.
Our Follow up Clinic will promote optimal growth and success for the babies born preterm through assessments and interventions. In this way we ensure the babies meet their developmental milestones throughout childhood.
“The clinic compassionate treatment and support for children and families validate the long term results of the hospital’s innovative studies and give patience the best possible chance to grow into healthy, school ready learners who thrive.” Julie Novak, Program Manager of Neodevelopmental Nemeth Follow Up Clinic.
The Student Night at the Opera Program provides students and their chaperones access to the final dress rehearsal of the mainstage productions. Students can enjoy opera stars singing accompanied by the San Diego Symphony Orchestra, see the cast and chorus in spectacular costumes, watch the backstage set transformations and, on occasion, be introduced to some of the performers and crew who make the productions possible.
The Nemeth Foundation was proud to be sponsoring this program and through its donations more than 7,500 students will be experiencing the magic world of the Opera.

Summer is San Diego is a lot of fun! Besides having the beach, the pool, the wonderful hikes in the canyons and natural parks, having THE BEST FRIENDS and spending time with them is really THE treat. Today, after doing some art projects with Rosie, water polo girlfriend and long time BFF, I surprised the girls with a visit to Reena’s Threading Center to get their very first Henna Tattoos.
Reena was very welcoming and warm, sharing with the girls her knowledge of Henna history. She’s using only natural henna ingredients directly imported from India and likes to use her imagination to created the patterns rather than follow the traditional patterns.
Thank you Reena for all making the girls’ visit a day they will always remember! Now, they won’t want to do water polo in fear of washing their tattoos away.
It’s always sunny in Sun Diego! Well, almost always! This year, however, we got a few rainy days with colder temperatures which meant the mountains around San Diego got a little snow.
What better way of starting the new 2015 if not with new adventures? We packed the car and off to Julian we went. We and other thousand of people…The trip to Julian normally takes around an hour and half, but this time …somewhat close to 5 hours of driving. Was it worth it? Totally! It was nice to see our happy kids be even happier!
