|Dr. Eliot Lazar|
The New York Academy of Medicine mourns the loss of Eliot J. Lazar, MD, MBA. A NYAM Fellow since 1995, Dr. Lazar served as Chair of the Committee on Admission and Membership from 2003-2013. In his position as Chair, he served as an ex-officio member of the NYAM Board of Trustees. He was also a valued member of the Section on Health Care Delivery.
“Dr. Lazar made an enormous contribution to NYAM in the most important area possible—the recruitment and selection of new Fellows and other affiliates. We will always value his commitment to NYAM and remember the profound respect and regard in which he was held by all his colleagues,” said Dr. Jo Ivey Boufford, NYAM President.
Dr. Lazar was Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Officer for Quality at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. His clinical interests included cardiovascular disease, geriatrics, and clinical pharmacology. His research interests included cardiovascular disease in the elderly, the disease’s incidence among minority populations, medical ethics, medical education, emergency preparedness of hospitals, and health care quality and access.
Dr. Lazar received his MD from SUNY Upstate and his MBA from NYU’s Stern School of Business, trained in internal medicine at Albert Einstein, and conducted his cardiology fellowship at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. Prior to joining NYP, Dr. Lazar was Chairman of the Department of Medicine at The Brooklyn Hospital Center.
The staff and Board of NYAM extend our deepest condolences to Dr. Lazar’s family and colleagues.
