    About LTZ Foundation

    The LTZ Foundation was officially established as a 501(c)3 entity in January 2003 with total assets of approximately $7,000 from contributions at Louise Tumarkin Zazove's memorial service. The Foundation commemorates the life of Louise Tumarkin Zazove, the eldest child of poor Russian immigrant parents who was born in 1915 in New York City and dreamed of becoming a physician despite it being incredibly unconventional for women at that time. She perservered and was finally accepted at the Chicago Medical School as the only woman in an entering class of 92 students. She would later go on to have a son who had bilateral hearing loss. Despite this challenge, he persevered like his mother, and went on to become one of the first deaf physicians in the United States.
