The New York Medical College 161st and the Touro College of Dental Medicine inaugural Commencement was celebrated on May 19.
It may not have been a typical Commencement—yet New York Medical College’s (NYMC) 161st and the Touro College of Dental Medicine’s (TouroCDM) inaugural Commencement celebrations were collectively a smashing success to behold. Not even the dictate to socially distance could put a damper on the tangible sense of pride and joy shared throughout the NYMC and Touro communities, as they collectively viewed the online pomp and circumstance via a YouTube video premiere at 7:00 p.m. on May 19.
When the first- and second-year medical school curriculum transitioned to remote learning in early March of 2020 and the magnitude of the COVID-19 outbreak became apparent, in true New York Medical College (NYMC) fashion, a group of medical students brainstormed about how they could help the community at large.
Honoree recognized for continually leading innovative projects that have significant public health implications.
Resiliency and adaptation were the theme of the webinar, (Re)building Our Community, hosted and moderated by Salomon Amar, D.D.S., Ph.D., vice president for research at New York Medical College and provost for biomedical research at Touro College and University System on May 13.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, researchers around the world are scrambling to develop a vaccine. More than a century ago, the 1918 influenza pandemic, which killed 50 to 100 million people worldwide, sparked similar vaccine-related research, and today, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that the influenza vaccine reduces the risk of flu illness by between 40 percent and 60 percent.
