"Aviva Katz"

Aviva was a native New Yorker, born in Brooklyn, graduated summa cum laude from City College (Sophie Davis Biomedical School), and received her MD degree from Mount Sinai School of Medicine (AOA). Her initial surgical training was at Beth Israel Hospital in Boston, where she spent two years in the lab studying pulmonary dysfunction after burns. From Boston, she moved to Buffalo, where she completed her general surgery training. Dr. Arnie Coran recruited her to Michigan for her pediatric surgical training. And it was at Michigan that she met the love of her life, Daniel Weiner.

After completing her pediatric surgical training, Aviva was on faculty at Jefferson Medical College of Thomas Jefferson University as an assistant professor of surgery and pediatrics, with her clinical practice based primarily at A.I. DuPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, Delaware. While in Delaware she welcomed her four wonderful children: Gabe, Sam, Channah, and Shoshana.
