“This technology is so cutting edge that I would actually feel remiss if I didn’t try to keep up with it,” said Goldberg. “I love the idea of people whose hearts and souls are devoted to making people better. I asked how I could help, and they told me I could join their Council – so here I am!”

“Whoopi is known worldwide as an entertainer, but her work to advance humanitarian causes is just as notable,” said the Foundation’s Chairman Neal F. Kassell, MD. “Focused ultrasound fits seamlessly with her passion to help others. We are honored to call her an advocate for focused ultrasound, and we look forward to exploring how she can help us raise awareness for the technology.”
