The University of Rochester’s Alumni and Advancement Center in Rochester, N.Y. has been renamed the Larry and Cindy Bloch Alumni and Advancement Center in recognition of the couple’s support of the university and, in particular, its Advancement programs. In a ceremony on Wednesday, Oct. 15, UR President Joel Seligman formally dedicated the center in honor of the Blochs, who live in Rancho Santa Fe. A university trustee, Larry Bloch ’75, chairs the board’s Development Committee and has served on several leadership committees for the Board of Trustees. He and his wife, Cindy, have established the James D. Thompson Chief Advancement Officer position, and they have committed support to create the Larry and Cindy Bloch Endowment for University Advancement.
Few people may know that Graves’ disease is one of the most common autoimmune diseases afflicting Americans today. Fewer still may know that the only national non-profit dedicated to its patients is headquartered in Rancho Santa Fe.
The Graves’ Disease and Thyroid Foundation, co-chaired by Rancho Santa Fe residents Kathleen Bell Flynn and Steve Flynn, has been located in their La Flecha office for the last three years.
The Flynns have been involved in the foundation for the past 10 years, after Kathleen was diagnosed with the disease that attacks the thyroid gland.
