Palisades Charter High School graduate Stephanie Boorstin recently matriculated from the Rocky Vista University College of Osteopathic Medicine. Boorstin, who attended San Francisco State University and received a Bachelor of Science degree, was one of 216 students selected to matriculate from an applicant pool of more than 3,900 candidates.
“Doctors of osteopathic medicine are fully licensed physicians who practice a ‘whole person’ approach to medicine,” according to information shared by the university. “Osteopathic physicians focus on preventive health care and receive extra training in the musculoskeletal system.”
The American Red Cross Western Los Angeles Chapter named Sean Inoue as its new executive director.
“With more than a decade of leadership experience with nonprofits, including his most recent role with Red Cross Biomedical Services, the organization is proud to welcome Sean as the new executive director for the Western LA Chapter,” an American Red Cross representative shared. “He will fill the new role following the retirement of Julie Thomas, who has dedicated nine years of service to the organization.”
The chapter’s primary office is located in Santa Monica from which it serves Pacific Palisades, Malibu, Santa Monica, Mar Vista, Marina del Rey, Playa Vista, Westchester, Playa del Rey, El Segundo and Manhattan Beach.
“When I first learned about the Red Cross, I knew it was a great organization, but did not fully understand the depth and impact of their work,” Inoue shared in a statement. “The response to disasters, whether it be someone’s home burning in the middle of the night or a large wildfire, and the support provided to vulnerable communities is profound to me. I’m excited to continue my work with the Red Cross in all lines of service in the Western Los Angeles Region.”
Paul Borraccia captured and shared a photo of the American and Pacific Palisades flags flying over the community.
