Three Lienhard School of Nursing Professors were recently inducted into the New York Academy of Medicine: Lucille Ferrara, EdD, RN, FNP-BC, MBA, FNAP; Carol Roye, EdD, CPNP, FAAN, and Rhonda Maneval, EdD, RN. Academy Fellows are distinguished professionals in medical and health professions and other disciplines affecting health, who embody the highest levels of achievement and leadership in urban health, elected by their peers.
The Academy’s prestigious Fellows program, the foundation on which the Academy was established in 1847, includes more than 2,000 individuals, elected by their peers, from across the medical and health professions, and other disciplines affecting health.
Fellows span a wide range of disciplines including medicine, nursing, social work, public health, administration, health policy, pharmacy, dentistry, law, and government, and are academics, practitioners, and policy makers in their fields.
In a tradition of honor and service, the Fellows are organized into diverse Sections and workgroups that address clinical and population health issues facing individuals and communities in New York City and cities around the world. Working collaboratively across disciplines, specialties, and institutional boundaries, Fellows participate in cutting edge research, educational, and health policy programs; organize events addressing critical health issues; and enjoy unprecedented networking opportunities as well as active engagement with staff of the Academy in the work conducted by the Institute for Urban Health and the Library.
