Dr. James O'Connell Named J.H. Kanter Prize Laureate
Date:8/11/2009

Neil Calman, MD, the President and CEO, of the Institute for Family Health in New York is dedicated to improving the quality and availability of primary care services to medically underserved communities in New York City and the Mid-Hudson Valley. He founded "Bronx Health REACH" which works with community and faith-based organizations, health care providers and public health officials to eliminate racial and ethnic disparities in health outcomes in diabetes in the southwest Bronx. Dr. Calman was nominated by: Medical Society of the State of New York.

Sister Anne Brooks, DO, the Founder and Director of the Tutwiler Medical Clinic in Tutwiler, Mississippi, started medical training at age 43 and currently provides multi-disciplinary care to some of the nation's most impoverished and medically underserved, offering not just primary health attention but education and resource assessment. She challenges entrenched civic, political and health care entities in the Mississippi Delta region to recognize and address the cumulative effects of social disadvantages on critical health needs. She has been known to accept payment from patients in bushels of squash. Dr. Brooks was nominated by the Mississippi Osteopathic Medical Association.

A team of dean designated medical students from two medical schools in Arizona made the initial review of scores of qualified nominees. Ten finalists were evaluated by a panel of distinguished physicians and scholars with broad knowledge, both clinical and academic, in the field of healthcare disparities across the nation.
