  • Way back in the 20th century, when I graduated from NYMC, it was called "Flower 5th" (1973). We were located in Manhattan at E105th and Fifth Avenue. I am an alumnus of U.Va., NYMC, Cornell University Medical College (now Weill/Cornell), and Columbia P&S. I am on adjunct faculty at NYMC and Manhattanville College.

    I am a veteran of forty years in the trenches as a Pediatric Immunologist/Allergist, I have taught at The New York Hospital-Weill/Cornell as a Clinical Assistant Professor (Pediatric Immunology/Allergy) and have spent a career dealing first hand with atopic and asthmatic airway disorders. The focus for this career has been the so-called "extrinsic factors" (furnished by our environment) coupled with the measurement of the "intrinsic" patient vulnerabilities and the measurable impact of these components on the health of pediatric and adult airways. It is the public health implications that also require an educated view...and my mission now is to share a conceptualization addressing both the individual patient impact as well as the global human health impact from air, water, food and environment.
    In addition, I am a certified bioethicist, I have held public office (borough council in NJ), and am an ultramarathoner (50 and 100 mile runs) and a lifelong athlete.
