--Distinguished Alumni From the Fields of Medicine and Law to Be Honored;

All Proceeds Will Fund the College’s Student Athletic Scholarships--

FLUSHING, NY, August 30, 2010—On Monday, September 13, the Queens College Foundation will host its fifth annual Golf and Tennis Classic at the Fresh Meadow Country Club in Lake Success, New York, to raise funds for QC student athletic scholarships. This year’s event will honor two alumni—world-renowned epidemiologist Charles H. Hennekens and tax and corporate law expert Ted Tashlik. Fees for the day start at $125 (dinner only), $200 (tennis) and $400 (golf), with a variety of sponsorship opportunities available for individual and group donors. Sign-in/locker assignments start at 10:30 am for golf and 11:30 am for tennis. 

Charles H. Hennekens, M.D., a research pioneer, is being recognized for his lifetime achievements. He discovered that aspirin prevents a first heart attack and can benefit those with prior arterial blockages if given during a heart attack. Hennekens is the first Sir Richard Doll Research Professor at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida; the first Eugene Braunwald Professor at Harvard Medical School, and the first Chief of Preventive Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. He received his BS in 1963 from Queens College where he was captain and MVP on the varsity basketball team and co-captain of the varsity baseball team. He earned an MD from Cornell and a DrPH in epidemiology from Harvard. As a Special Government Employee, Hennekens serves as consultant to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and, from 1995–2005, was the third most widely cited medical researcher in the world.

Ted Tashlik is a member of the Queens College class of 1961. He graduated in 1964 from Cornell University Law School where he was a member of the Law Review and the recipient of the E.D.P. Carey Prize for legal excellence. He received an LLM in the graduate tax program at NYU Law School. Tashlik, whose practice concentrates on corporate, securities and tax matters, is a director of public and private companies and an advisor to charitable and non-profit companies. He is also a member of various bar associations and served as the Chairman of the Corporation Law Committee of the Nassau County Bar Association.
