NYAM Hosts President's Society Reception at Historic Red Rooster in Harlem

On Thursday, September 20, 2012, NYAM hosted its annual President’s Society reception at Harlem’s famed Red Rooster restaurant. The event pays tribute to friends of NYAM who give generously throughout the year to support our core programs and initiatives. This year’s reception featured a presentation on NYAM’s newly created Center for the History of Medicine and Public Health by the Center’s Director, Lisa G. O’Sullivan, PhD.

Dr. O'Sullivan, who most recently served as Senior Curator of Medicine at the Science Museum London, where she curated the Wellcome collection, one of the world's preeminent historic medical collections, spoke at length about the Center’s vast historical archives and collections and the importance of connecting the past with the present, particularly around urban health and the practice of medicine. Dr. Jo Ivey Boufford, NYAM President, also gave a brief overview of NYAM’s critical work in the areas of healthy aging, the prevention of disease and the promotion of health, and eliminating health disparities.

Guests included Jack D. Barchas, MD, former NYAM Trustee and his wife, Rosemary Stevens, PhD, MPH; James Dubin, CEO, CONAIR Corporation and his wife, Susan Dubin; John L. Damonti, President, Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation and NYAM Trustee and his wife, Barbara Yastine; Jane B. O’Connell, President, The Altman Foundation and her husband, Ralph A. O’Connell, MD, Dean and Provost, New York Medical College; and Szilvia Szmuk-Tanenbaum, PhD, member of NYAM’s Development Committee.
