The Capitol Press Room, a daily radio program broadcast from the Capitol, and produced by WCNY radio profiled two initiatives championed by the Associated Medical Schools of New York (AMSNY) that are designed with a two-fold purpose: encouraging young people from low-income communities to pursue careers in the health sciences; and addressing the challenges of New York’s anticipated physician shortage.
Featured on the program were Jo Wiederhorn, AMSNY’s President and Chief Executive Officer; and a 25-year-old graduate student, Kevin Frison, who upon completion of AMSNY’s Post-Baccalaureate Program at the University at Buffalo will enroll later this year at Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
