Kelli Cohen Fein, MD

Kelli Cohen Fein MD, a native Houstonian, is both a general and pediatric radiologist. She is well known and respected for her focused dedication and support of numerous vital community and social causes in our city.

Of her many associations, Kelli is passionate about her work with the Baylor College of Medicine Huffington Center on Aging; the Women’s Cancer Foundation whose mission is to downgrade breast and other female cancers in low-resource countries; and the Anti-Defamation League.

Kelli Cohen Fein, along with Barbara Van Postman, is co-chairing the 2015 Medical Bridges Gala in October and is a co-recipient of the 2015 Chairman’s Award at Medical Bridges Services Awards Dinner on April 23rd.

Kelli talks about her personal philosophy and the importance of giving back, of her insight into the need for global healthcare, and why support of nonprofits, such as Medical Bridges, is so essential.

“In every aspect of my life, Tikkun Olam is a guiding principle. This Hebrew phrase reflects a frame of reference for our individual and collectively shared responsibility as human beings living on the planet to heal, repair and transform the world.

“Even in Houston, where many citizens have access to modern medicine and state-of- the-art technology, the plight of humanity is always palpable, especially when working with the indigent populations.

“And yet, it remains a challenge to imagine what the majority of our fellow human beings face across the world without access to electricity and clean water much less  a modicum of  health care.

“A tour of the Medical Bridges facility affords one insight into the internal operations and infrastructure of this Herculean mission to reach across the globe and bring life-saving medical supplies and equipment to children and families living in medically underserved countries.

“The packaging, staging and loading zones at Medical Bridges are replete with abundant donations from partners around our community. The ‘Containers of Hope’ are formidable in size and weight - bearing tangible, high quality medical supplies from sterile needles and syringes to wheelchairs, surgical tables and EKG machines.

“Medical Bridges partners with myriad volunteer groups who work to package the supplies and fill the containers. There is great promise and hope for humanity as you witness the mission of Medical Bridges coming to fruition thanks to the generous, collaborative efforts from individuals and organizations across our city.”
