Dr. Melissa Simon Elected to the National Academy of Medicine!
It is an honor to announce that our CHET Faculty Director, Dr. Melissa Simon, has been elected to the National Academy of Medicine (NAM)!

NAM is one of the three academies that constitute the National Academies in the United States. The additional two academies are the National Academy of Science and the National Academy of Engineering. NAM was founded in 1970 and has been committed to improving health in our country and world for over 50 years.

NAM's election criteria and process is based upon distinguished professional achievement in relation to medicine and health. Being elected into NAM is exemplary of top level professional accomplishments as well as earnest devotion to service. Only 90 regular members and 10 international members are elected annually. 

“To be inducted into NAM reflects not my achievement — this achievement belongs truly to the ‘we’ and not the ‘me’. It took not just the love and support of my family but a true village of community members, organizations, clinicians, professors and countless others. But above all, this honor really goes to my extraordinary team members; I could never have achieved a tenth of my accomplishments without my team,” said Simon, who is also Vice Chair for Research in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and a member of the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University. 

Thank you, Dr. Simon for all of the amazing work you do to advance health equity.

Help us in saying a massive congratulations to Dr. Simon on this well deserved achievement! You can tweet her
