|THE GOOD FIGHT. The family of Gabe Feldman ’82 joined a large group of alumni at Brandeis House in New York City for “Blowing the Whistle on Waste.” The discussion focused on Gabe’s commitment to social justice and determination to right a wrong, which led to New York City officials’ paying the U.S. Department of Justice $70 million to settle the biggest Medicaid fraud case in the city’s history.
