RIFKIND--Richard A. The Winston Foundation mourns the passing of Director Emeritus and former President, Dr. Richard A. Rifkind, M.D., father of Director Barbara Rifkind. Richard's lifetime commitment to philanthropy in support of the arts, humanities and sciences was evidenced by his vision and leadership at the Foundation. As Chairman and Chief Scientific Officer of the Sloan Kettering Institute, Dr. Rifkind championed research and initiatives that took medical achievement to new heights, and established New York City's leadership as a collaborative medical science center. To his wife Carole and the entire Rifkind family, the board extends its sincere condolences. Richard's passion, humanity, and partnership will be sorely missed by so many. Lauri Levitt Friedland, President Jan Krukowski, Director Arthur Levitt, Jr, Director Emeritus
