November Medical Professional Newsletter

admroarnycNovember 10, 2022

Welcome our New Board Member Dr. Chan is a board-certified pediatrician at a PCMH-recognized hospital-affiliated primary care office in Hempstead and a teacher for pediatric residents and medical students who have their continuity clinic in her office. Dr. Chan graduated from St. George’s School of Medicine and completed her residency at NYU Langone Long Island Hospital formally known as Winthrop Hospital. After working 6 years in 2 offices in the NYC area at Maimonides Hospital in Brooklyn and Urban Health Plan in Corona, Queens, Dr. Chan returned to the same office where Dr. Chan had trained as a resident and has been practicing here for the past 6 years. In addition to her clinical responsibilities, Dr. Chan is involved with several quality improvement projects including 1) evaluation and management of patients with ADHD, 2) coaching the resident project on the early education of dental care and brushing in her patients, and 3) coaching the medical student project on depression screening. Since Dr. Chan returned 6 years ago, Dr. Chan became the Reach Out and Read Coordinator and was the recipient of the 2021 Living, Breathing, ROR GNY Award. In 12 years as a pediatrician, besides taking care of children and watching them grow up, it has been a pleasure to teach the next generation of pediatricians to detect early, educate and help prevent health concerns to provide our children with a better future.
