Friends of the Rare Book Room

Gifts to the Friends of the Rare Book Room (FRBR) support public programs in the history of medicine, the acquisition and cataloging of historical scholarly material, and activities that make the Rare Book Room a center for scholarship in the history of medicine and public health and for the study of books and printing.

The John Stearns Legacy Society

The John Stearns Legacy Society honors individuals who have remembered NYAM in their wills and estate plans or have given $25,000 or more to an endowment fund. John Stearns, MD, the first president of The New York Academy of Medicine in 1847, was one of the most distinguished physicians of his day. He championed the establishment of high professional standards and was instrumental in improving the health of the public nationwide.

The President's Society

The President's Society recognizes donors who made gifts or grants of $1,000 or more to The New York Academy of Medicine for any purpose. We pay tribute to this premiere giving group at a reception in their honor each fall. These significant gifts and grants strengthen our ability to advance the health of people in cities.
