National Academy of Medicine elects 100 new members; most diverse class yet 

The National Academy of Medicine announced Oct. 18 its selection of 100 new members who will join its ranks. They represent the most diverse class intake yet.  

Election to the academy honors those in the fields of medicine, public health and the medical sciences. The selection process recognizes individuals who have made major contributions to these fields. One quarter of the new members are from outside the health field and 10 percent are international.

"It is my privilege to welcome this extraordinary class of new members. Their contributions to health and medicine are unmatched. This is also the NAM’s most diverse class of new members to date, composed of approximately 50 percent women and 50 percent racial and ethnic minorities. This class represents many identities and experiences – all of which are absolutely necessary to address the existential threats facing humanity," said academy President Victor J. Dzau, MD.
