Speakers at the reception included Mr. Meyer Luskin, Mr. Craig Ehrlich, Mr. Michael Sullivan, Dr. Steven Dubinett, Dr. Anthony Scaduto, and Dr. Nick Bernthal. Dr. Nick Bernthal is the first Chair to have a pediatric practice.

Mr. Ehrlich hosted the reception at his award-winning home in Santa Monica, which has been featured in "ARCHITECT" and other publications for its beauty and advanced green technology. The home has won both the Decade and Citation Awards for AIA/Los Angeles. The night started with a flurry of excitement as the UCLA student mariachi band, Mariachi de Uclatlán, performed songs while food and drinks were served.

During his speech, Dr. Nick Bernthal revealed his vision for the department and discussed the alliance between LuskinOIC and UCLA. He focused on three foundational objectives:

1. Access and excellence are not competing priorities. Very few do both: LuskinOIC and UCLA Department of Orthopaedics do.

2. Innovation will always be our calling card: LuskinOIC and UCLA transform how pediatric orthopaedic practice is done.

3. Every aspect of what we do is for the patient.

The evening was a testament to Dr. Nick Bernthal’s dedication and brilliance, and we are thrilled to be a part of his journey as he continues to revolutionize the field. We at LuskinOIC extend our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who joined us.
