“Each year, the National Academy of Medicine (NAM) recognizes professionals who have made outstanding contributions in fields such as the medical sciences, health care and public health, and who have demonstrated a commitment to volunteer service. In addition to being an honorific society, NAM provides independent, objective analysis and advice to the nation that help guide public policy decisions related to health and medicine.”
Congratulations Dr. Niklason!
