Congratulations to our Scientific Advisory Board Co-Chair, Mary K. Crow, MD, for receiving the 2018 Presidential Gold Medal presented by the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) during their Annual Meeting in Chicago.
Dr. Crow is Physician-in-Chief at Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS), and Chief of Rheumatology at Weill Cornell Medicine and New York Presbyterian Hospital/Cornell Medical Center.
According to the ACR, the Presidential Gold Medal is “the highest award that the ACR can bestow,” “awarded in recognition of outstanding achievements in rheumatology over an entire career.” Each Gold medalist has made important contributions in “clinical medicine, research, education, or administration.”
“It’s a tremendous honor to receive this award,” said Dr. Crow. “Throughout my career, I have worked to improve the understanding and treatment of autoimmune rheumatic diseases to increase the quality of patient care.”
