“I am aware not only of your great expertise but also of your generosity and the very practical assistance which you offer to so many people here in our area, and indeed, around the world – even to the Vatican.”
Most Reverend John J. Myers, Archbishop of Newark
“I write to congratulate you on your 50 years of service at Saint Michael’s Medical Center in Newark, New Jersey. You are truly an icon at Saint Michael’s. We all look up to you with so much respect and gratitude. You have truly dedicated your life to Saint Michael’s.
How often have you taken care of us, free of charge. Your patients have included Cardinals, Archbishops, Bishops, Monsignors, priests, Religious Brothers and Sisters, and Cloistered Nuns. Your expertise and wisdom have helped us all.
Your care of the poor is well known. So often have you reached out, in a selfless way, to take care of the most needy among us. May God reward you for your charity.”
Most Reverend Manuel A. Cruz, D.I., Auxiliary Bishop of Newark

Smith Infectious Diseases Foundation Teams with Scholarship Fund for Inner-City Children – for Governor Brendan Byrne Scholarship Contest
The Dr. Leon Smith Infectious Disease Foundation in conjunction with the Scholarship Fund for Inner-City Children has created the Governor Brendan Bryne Scholarship.
The Governor Bryne Scholarship is an equal opportunity scholarship open to any freshman, sophomore or junior attending a Catholic high school in the Archdiocese of Newark. The scholarship is based on an essay on Infectious Diseases and the winner will receive a $1,000 grant with the runner-up a $500 grant.
“Our Foundation is pleased to put this program in place to honor an exceptional individual – Brendan Byrne,” said Dr. Smith, the founder of the foundation. “The Governor has been a strong supporter of our initiatives in research and scholarships. This is a small honor for a man who has meant a great deal to the people of New Jersey.”
The Scholarship Fund for Inner-City Children is handling the management of the scholarship and the essay contest. All essays must be in by May 16, 2014.
