The annual Junior Fellows Research Poster Session and Culmination Ceremony is a cornerstone event at NYAM, as the middle and high school students in NYAM's selective and academically rigorous Junior Fellows Program celebrate the completion of a ten-month course of study spent learning about the health professions and conducting secondary research.
Understanding the complexities of health care is just one of the many challenges facing health care professionals, policy makers, and the general public who often struggle to keep pace with the rise in their health care costs. For high-needs, high-cost patients, the challenge is even more daunting.
The mandatory-sentencing craze that drove up the prison population tenfold, pushing state corrections costs to bankrupting levels, was rooted in New York’s infamous Rockefeller drug laws. These laws, which mandated lengthy sentences for nonviolent, first-time offenders, were approved 40 years ago next month. They did little to curtail drug use in New York or in other states that mimicked them, while they filled prisons to bursting with nonviolent addicts who would have been more effectively and more cheaply dealt with through treatment programs.
To honor the legacy of Margaret E. Mahoney, and her commitment to addressing the health care and developmental needs of vulnerable populations, especially children, a new fellowship program has been created for health professional and health policy students, focused on transforming health care delivery systems for vulnerable urban populations as well as early childhood health and development.

The New York State Department of Health developed the Prevention Agenda toward the Healthiest State, the Department's state health improvement plan for 2008-2012, as a call to action to local health departments, health care providers, health plans, schools, employers, and businesses to collaborate at the community level to improve the health status of New Yorkers through increased emphasis on prevention.
