Marie Truglio-Londrigan Joins NYAM

Nursing professor Marie Truglio-Londrigan, PhD, RN, was recently inducted as a Fellow of the New York Academy of Medicine (NYAM), one of the nation’s oldest medical academies.

She joins an elite group of approximately 3,000 fellows, including doctors, nurses and health care administrators, who are rigorously selected for a combination of certification in a health care specialty, scholarship, and active involvement in professional and community change. The Academy, founded in 1847, is an effective advocate in public health reform and a major center for health education.

Dr. Truglio-Londrigan was inducted into the Academy at a reception on November 7.

Election to Fellowship in the Academy is limited to those who embody the highest levels of achievement and reflects a rigorous nomination and review process. Criteria for Fellowship include certification by a specialty board, active involvement in medical or professional organizations and active participation in the health-related affairs of the community unrelated to income-producing work. Other considerations include outstanding contributions in medical services, health or science policy, teaching programs in a hospital, medical school, or other academic institution, research and/or publication of scholarly articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals.
