Chapter 2 Legislative update

NYSDOH, in partnership with NCQA, has developed a New York specific Patient-Centered Medical Home model, known as, NYSPCMH. The newly designed NCQA PCMH 2017 model is distinctly different in design than prior programs and NYSDOH has embraced these changes in support of advancing primary care and pediatrics throughout the State.  Read more here.

Tobacco 21 Victory!

Congratulations to Chapter 2 Vice President, Dr. Shetal Shah, and all who worked on and attended the May 23rd vote of the Nassau County Legislature, where a bill that we worked on for the last 10 years passed unanimously. This important bill raises the age to purchase tobacco and related products, including e-cigarettes, to 21. Nassau County will finally join Suffolk County and all of NYC in complying with Tobacco 21. This is a big win for our Chapter and the children we care for!

Congratulations to the recipients of individual Outstanding Achievement Awards from the American Academy of Pediatrics for 2018:

  • Robert Lee, DO, MS, FACOP, FAAP, for his work on the Chapter Foster Care Committee and deep, ongoing commitment to the chapter.
  • Kenneth Bromberg, MD, FAAP, for his unflagging advocacy for immunization initiatives and his mentorship of the Chapter Immunization Quality Improvement Program.
