EVA DUBIN’S 3 TIPS FOR GREAT HEALTH

Eva Andersson Dubin describes herself as “the three P’s — patient, physician, philanthropist.”

She also names three things that are key to her own health: Sleep, nutrition, exercise.

Dubin needs energy to fuel her passion: Give breast-cancer patients better care and longer lives.

The former Ford model, former Miss Sweden, current part-time Palm Beacher and breast-cancer survivor is founder of the Dubin Breast Center at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City.

Dubin and her husband, Glenn — a philanthropist, a co-founder of Highbridge Capital Management and principal at Dubin Co. investment firm and No. 28 on Forbes’ 2017 list of “The World’s Richest Hedge-Fund Billionaires” — have donated approximately $19 million and helped raise another $24 million to open the center in 2011 and keep it growing.

Dubin shares the story of her own breast cancer openly and matter-of-factly.

The mother of three got her first annual mammogram at 40, the year most medical professionals recommend.

She had no history of breast cancer in her family, but she was a doctor.

She knew cancer does not discriminate.

“I thought, ‘Why not me?’” she says.

Her second annual mammogram, in 2002, showed calcifications in her left breast. Her diagnosis: ductal carcinoma in situ, or, abnormal cells inside a milk duct in the breast.

All her life, she has been committed to total health — starting with her own.

Here are three of her health tips:

Get plenty of sleep: “I need my sleep — eight hours,” she says.

Every person is different, of course, but Dr. Dubin realized when she was in medical school that she had to be in charge of her energy — and that’s about sleep, diet and exercise.

Eat in moderation: She usually eats the same lunch every day, she told Tory Burch Daily: a huge salad with tons of nuts, dried fruit, lentils and grilled vegetables that she packs at home.

She watches her portions. When she’s in Palm Beach, she likes the small plates at HMF inside The Breakers — and she rarely indulges in more than a half-glass of wine.

Multi-task: The Dubin Breast Center is directly across from Central Park. So, Dubin returns calls while she walks in the park. She also powers her way to work — cruising up Fifth Avenue on a red kick scooter.
