October 28, 2009 THE VILLADOM TIMES I • Page 13 Area Margaret Lam and David Yen of Montville have donated an initial $120,000 to William Paterson University to establish a Center for Chinese Art on campus over the next two years. The gift will support the university’s Chinese art curriculum, provide students with opportunities to learn Chinese art techniques, and cultivate a deeper understanding between the United States and its Chinese residents. Margaret Lam is president and CEO of Prosperity Resources Development International, Inc. of Irvington, an import and export company focused on Chinese foods and goods. Her husband, David Yen, is a retired vice president of Chase Manhattan Bank. “The center will give our students the opportunity to deepen and expand their understanding of Chinese arts and culture,” said University President Arnold Speert. “In today’s global society, cultural outreach is increasingly important to the comprehensive education of our students.” Funding will support several new initiatives including, the summer art in China program, courses in Chinese art, classes in traditional techniques such as ink painting and calligraphy, Chinese art exhibits, visiting artists exchanges, and a new website dedicated to the center. These initiatives will be part of a six-year project, to be developed in three phases. Zhiyuan Cong, professor of art at William Paterson, and a renowned artist who works in both traditional and contemporary Chinese art, is the coordinator of the effort on University to establish Chinese art center campus and works closely with the donors who are both involved in the arts and in promoting Chinese art and culture. “All my life I have worked on the ideal of bridging Chinese and American culture through art,” said Margaret Lam. “Through the Center for Chinese Art at William Paterson University, this dream can be fulfilled. I look forward to working with Professor Cong to make the center a success, not only for students but also for the community.” David Yen added, “Margaret and I are very impressed by the activities at William Paterson and with Professor Cong. The center gives the university’s students a place to understand and appreciate the origins of Chinese art, which has a very long tradition, and has been passed down from dynasty to dynasty. We hope for the success of the center.” Cong believes that it “is easier to understand a culture through its art. The center will help the university to make its traditional Chinese art program stronger, and will allow us to educate our art students in both Eastern and Western practice and theory. It will be a base dedicated to education, research, promoting Chinese culture to the community, and developing special programs and exhibits.” Lam, who was born in Hong Kong and immigrated to the United States in 1967, has a long and distinguished background in community activism and philanthropy.

Included on the magazine’s list of the 100 best doctors for women were John Strobeck, M.D., Ph.D., director of The Valley Hospital’s Heart Failure Program; Dennis Reison, M.D.; Gerald Sotsky, M.D.; Sheldon Eisenberg. M.D.; and Elliott Lichstein, M.D. Heart specialists were included in this magazine for women because heart disease is the leading cause of death among women. Nearly twice as many American women die of heart disease, stroke, and other cardiovascular diseases than from all forms of cancer, according to the American Heart Association. The Valley Hospital believes that every woman should know her risk for heart disease. The hospital’s Center for Women’s Heart Health offers a comprehensive heart risk assessment that can identify if a woman is at increased risk for heart disease.
