DR. PATRICIA WOLFF: “INTERNATIONAL HUMANITARIAN OF THE YEAR”

I felt like a character in an Antonioni film, walking across the endless marble passageway in the lobby of the Four Seasons and into a sterilized elevator rising to the top floor for the World Affairs Council tribute to Meds & Food for Kids (MFK), represented by Dr. Patricia Wolff.  Wolff, a professor of Clinical Pediatrics at WashU’s School of Medicine, founded MFK in her frustration from watching malnourished Haitian children needlessly die. So, the organization began to produce highly-nutritious food products in that country. Estimates are that MFK has saved the lives of 70,000 children. A cocktail reception preceded the dinner program emceed by KMOX’s Charlie Brennan and World Affairs Council prez Deepak Kant Vyas presented the award to Wolff.  Her husband, SLU Law Dean Michael Wolff, greeted the donors that included: Kris Parsons, huddled with Dr. Warren Rosenblum, who hailed that Pulitzer Prize-winner and the Washington Post’s Philip Kennicott will soon visit our town to huddle with former colleagues who worked at the Post-Dispatch.
