NYAM Fellows embody the highest levels of achievement and leadership in the fields of urban health, science, social work, nursing, education, law, medicine and research. Fellows are an elite group of health professionals of the utmost distinction who, taken together, comprise a body of knowledge, expertise and commitment that is the foundation of NYAM's strength. They are leaders in thought, action and vision who have dedicated their lives and careers to working to improve the health of the public.
Dr. Nereida Correa may have just joined the Academy upon her election as a Fellow in January 2015, but her fascination with the Academy began at a young age.
On February 10, 2015, the Academy awarded its first-ever Academic Research Award in Dermatology to Andrea Suarez, MD, a dermatology resident from Weill Cornell Medical College. Dr. Suarez was chosen for her project entitled “The Role of SOX10 in Invasive Melanoma,” which is about identifying a new marker to better predict and possibly help treat melanoma.
On January 28, 2015, the NYAM Section on Health Care Delivery hosted the event “Trailblazing the Path Through the Thicket: Caring for New York's Medically Complex Patients,” featuring speaker Allison Hamblin, MSPH, Vice President of Strategic Planning at the Center for Health Care Strategies, Inc. (CHCS) and a panel of experts from Maimonides Medical Center and FEGS Health & Human Services.
