The Rivkin Center is pleased to add three new board members to its board of directors. These board members bring a wealth of experience, both healthcare-related as well as fundraising, to the board and have hit the ground running in support of the Rivkin Center’s mission.
Amy P. Sing, M.D.
Dr. Amy P. Sing has more than 20 years of experience in oncology drug and molecular diagnostic development. She has led both large and small organizations and teams with a track record of success and a reputation for honesty, intelligence, innovation, critical but practical thinking and high energy. After retiring in 2016, she now uses her experience and passions to serve on boards of growing biotech companies and non-profit organizations. Over the past year, she worked with the state to coordinate vaccinations for people in harder to reach areas and communities. For 24 years, Dr. Sing co-chaired an annual golf tournament, the Think Pink Invitational to support breast cancer research here in the Puget Sound region, raising about $300K over the years.
Eva Corets is an experienced product manager in the computer software industry. During her three decades at Microsoft, she honed her skills in advertising, strategic partnerships, customer empathy, product marketing, and driving for action. Fifteen years ago this week, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and would later learn that she and many in her family, including her daughter, carry the BRCA mutation. She believes the Rivkin Center plays an important role in educating women about their bodies and the connection between breast and ovarian cancer. Ms. Corets and her husband prioritize philanthropy in their lives; consequently, she loves to ask people for money because, according to her, “most people want to be asked.”
