Three join Institute of Medicine

Yale Medicine Magazine, 2003 - Winter


Each year a few dozen select physicians and scientists are named to the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences to serve as unpaid advisors to the government. Among those elected last October for their contributions to health and medicine were three Yale faculty members: Michael H. Merson, M.D., the dean and Anna M.R. Lauder Professor of Public Health and chair of the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health; Richard P. Lifton, M.D., Ph.D., chair and professor of genetics and professor of medicine and molecular biophysics and biochemistry; and Michele Barry, M.D., HS ’77, professor of medicine and public health. As members they will contribute their knowledge and professional judgment to the development of findings and the formulation of recommendations, most of which relate to public policy.
