THANK YOU TO OUR PARTNERS AND OUR SPONSORS
Our Jewish Preventive Health Committee focuses on responding to public health issues within the Jewish community. Our first goal is to help stop the current measles outbreak within the community by working with the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene to provide free and confidential vaccination services to families in Boro Park and Williamsburg. We are establishing a confidential hotline that community members can call to ask for their children to be vaccinated in the privacy of their own homes (i.e. without having to worry about the logistics of getting a large family to the doctor's office or about possible criticism from anti-vaccine neighbors), and then physician volunteers from the committee will go to the family's home to provide MMR vaccines and health education.
For more info, or to volunteer, please email Maureen Nemetski, MD, Pediatric Emergency Medicine, at email@example.com
Our Community Education Committee focuses on providing health education and awareness to the Jewish community. Our first initiative is to create a webinar series featuring important updates and resources on a variety of topics related to health issues that are pertinent to the Jewish community. Our first webinar will feature the HPV vaccine.

Our Mentorship Program focuses on matching residents, medical students, pre-medical students, and high school students interested in medicine with established, well-known physician mentors. The goal of our Mentorship Program is to provide mentorship, career counseling, guidance, research opportunities, networking, and general support to religious Jewish women who are pushing a career in medicine. Our physician mentors are from all different fields of medicine and we will mentees to mentors according to their medical interests. Please note, our Mentorship Program is only available to active members.
