The Greater New York Hospital Association (GNYHA) and The New York Academy of Medicine (NYAM), together with the Rudin Family Foundation, established the Lewis and Jack Rudin New York Prize for Medicine and Health in 2003. Beginning in 2011, the focus of the prize shifted to honoring clinicians, health care administrators, or health policy/health services researchers from New York City metropolitan-area institutions whose work has made important contributions to demonstrating how the health care delivery system can work effectively with partners in public health and the community to address issues associated with prevention, healthy community options, and policies that support investment and change in determinants of health.
NYAM is pleased to invite you to our highly-respected, annual Albany Update panel, an evening with New York State policy leaders who will discuss how policy is being developed and implemented around New York State's health care delivery system.
Although the London Bills of Mortality are generally seen as part of the Scientific Revolution, the City of London had begun collecting parish-by-parish mortality data in the mid-sixteenth century. During the politically rocky period between the death of Henry VIII and the accession of Elizabeth I, Reformation London gathered detailed weekly reports for use not just during plagues but to support a broad range of community-based health efforts. This talk will show how that strategy arose from the City’s exceptionally strong charter and the close ties among its guild system, City officials, and the established church.

In 2008, patients and pharmacies across North America began reporting more severe shortages affecting more numerous drugs: some injectables; some pills; all older, cheaper, off-patent remedies, called “generics.” Using media reports, scientific articles, interviews, government documents, and the evidence of previous shortages from as early as World War II, this paper will trace the history of the current drug shortage crisis. It will also delve deeper into the pharmaceutical past to identify potential causes.
A 1965 book, Intern, by “Doctor X,” set a precedent for exposing difficult realities underlying medical education. The stories of the behind-the-scenes world of the hospital put this book on the best-seller list for weeks. But the motivation was not to write a “tell-all,” but rather to change the medical training regimen for the better. This talk will explore not only what these narratives said about the education of doctors, but also why the authors wrote when they did, at a time when social change, and rights movements in particular, transformed the American medical profession in the late 20th century.
